I already had twitter and LinkedIn info in the system, so it liked me. What if you don't have them? Are you stuck?

@anon1416625, Agilent also has touch screen scopes now.

Go into your profile and change your nickname, unless you don't want us to know who you really are.

Yes, but I'd say the bigger UI differentiator is their strong embrace of the touchscreen, not the 1-knob issue!

R&S scopes and vertical sensitivity

R&S scopes differ from competitor's scopes in one crucial way: the user interface. That is, others have kept dedicated knobs for vertical sensitivity. R&S uses a single know with color-coded rig around it to indicate which channel is in use. Does that work for you or do you prefer dedicated V/div knobs?

Scope with logic inputs

Just about everyone has logic inputs on their scopes and have for years. Mixed-signal scopes keep gaining in poularity for debugging embedded systems.
