Strangely Aubrey's review

Either my memory is really bad, or you mean Glen...

@Crusty, hi....Siglent have quite a good name and the prices are good.  Strangely Glen Chenier's review of the Atten unit also found a bandwidth of 140 MHz, one of the few things he was impressed by.  Jack promised another follow-up review in a year or so, and that was in 2014, maybe someone should remind him..... (but I think he's hung up his scope probes now??)

Or maybe you should do one once you have got it and used it a bit!

@David Hope the new year is good for you to.

I have been loking around Jack Gansell's reviews and I do not think I could do much better at this price than the Sigient he reviewed here. It certainly seems capable up to 100MHz.

@Crusty...happy new year....if you're looking at new scopes then do bear in mind the experiences of the late Glen Chenier (bless his cotton socks...wish he was still with us):

The brand is given at the end of page 3.....so be warned.....

PS what's OWON??  Old Worn Out N???

Hi David; I am on the look out for an new DSO, my OWON 25MHz DSO is still good, but with the clock speeds that I am using, evan as an amateur, it looks like 100MHz is the order of the day.

I looked at the possibility of purchasing an MSO but once you get to look at the analyser protocol options combined with the cheaper MSO, it is still better value to buy a Saleae 16 channel stand alone logic analyser and have it's good list of decoder protocols. Plus the Saleae works with MAC and Windows 10. I am pleased with the Saleae 16 channel I bought recently. 

I must admit a lot of the new cheaper DSO scopes seem to be missing interfaces to Windows 10 and MAC OS.

So I have still to decide on which DSO (cheap 100MHz ) I am going to spend my money on. I still want a screen and knobs and not a USB scope.

Sage advice.  Maybe in 2017 I will get a digital scope to replace my 25 MHz analog clunker (faithful though it is) and have to start worrying about ENOBs and the like.... :-)

Martin, Chris, A happy new year to you both,
