    An oscilloscope is one of the harder itens to get due its price and the weight limits the abillity of buying abroad!
    Even second hand ones can be expensive. I’ve seen people ask 400-500 euros for 1970’s scopes in second hand site.

    You can get the Rigol scopes from . I got my DS1052E for about $400 USD including shipping (from China), it’s done a good job for me so far and I haven’t even applied the hack that changes it from a 50Mhz scope to a 100 MHz scope yet.

    A quick comment.

    I purchased, after much research, a owon sds7102 for about $425.00 USD off of ebay (gobuyjudy2009). Took some time to get it. The quick turnaround promised didn’t happen. Something to do with a firmware update..?

    But let me say I’m quite pleased with the product. AND I understand it can be obtained from Saelig for 425.00 USD now.

  • KH: Let's try a back-of-envelope calc balancing energies. From MCP1700 datasheet, there are graphs for a 200mA load step. Estimate the energy shortfall as 12uJ. Say...

  • KH: Agree, so okay, I guess he must have learned from somewhere. 100nF and 1000uF is so far apart, that was jarring; it's more magic incantation...
