Why don't you get a nice Rigol DS1052 @ $350
Simply because it's Chinese. And unless it's made in USA, UK or Germany I don't bother even if I had to pay a lot.
Well we already determined that Tektronics scopes aren't made in the USA - they are made in China ...
Made in the UK? Good luck with that. Not sure about Germany but ... you're getting into the electronics hobby, and as far as oscilloscopes go, you refuse to buy any that are made in China. OK.
I'm very curious analoger, are you expecting to apply this Chinese purchasing filter to any other electronics hobby products such as resistors, ICs, displays, DMMs, function generators, capacitors, transistors, diodes, LEDs, speakers, servos, relays, ... shall I go on?
I'm just curious as to what it is about scopes that cause you to say that you won't purchase one made in China, when just about everything else you'll be buying will be either made in China or, if it is really made (as in assembled) in a country other than China, will be chock absolutely full of Chinese components and parts.
I mean I really wish the world were different, I wish the US made oscilloscopes and all the parts that go inside them
, and that the price and functionality of one would be competitive with a Chinese scope.
But that world doesn't exist anymore.
