I'm in the market for an oscilloscope. My previous approach was to get a used Tektronix on eBay. There are plenty of good ones - even 100MHz 4 channel digital scopes for about $1100. However, I started looking at Rigol - specifically the DS1102D. It's two channel, 100MHz BW and it has a 16 channel logic analyzer as well as USB interface and color screen. I know better than to just compare bullet points because Tektronix is a very well respected brand and Rigol as far as I can tell is of Chinese design and manufacture. Has anyone used it? Are there any gotchas? Anything I should watch out for?
I'm liking the answers so far and I just realized Rigol is the scope that had the bandwidth hack, so I'll extend the question to include the BW hack - who has used it and how did it treat you? And has anyone tried it on anything other than the DS1052E?
