    Nope, but it looks interesting. Maybe you can do a review for the rest of us when you get to try it out.

    I bought an HP 475 on Ebay good for 200+ MHz and it works just fine. High quality and very reliable. Perhaps I was lucky. But you can usually tell who to trust on Ebay by their selling record, which is given by Ebay.

    I have been using my 100 MHz Tektronix 2235 since the 80's and it still works like new. They make some tough scopes. Been looking at purchasing a LCD version to save space but my experience with a scope meter and it's limited display capabilities turned me off to LCD scopes. Has anyone tried one of those "turn your PC into a scope" units? How do they stand up to shop use, and do they even make one that runs at 100 MHz?

    Yeah I found some decent sellers but another thing I'm looking for now is a good warranty. I'll let you guys know how this little thing does.

    I have experience with some of their other scopes.

    The GW Instek stuff I found to be well made equipment. I've got one of the lower end scopes at home. It hasn't let me down yet...

    This seems like a decent scope. I haven't done much testing yet. The only thing that's a little buggy is the autoset. Sometimes using it will cause the vertical position to jump down to -40-50 volts and I have to dial it back up. I'm still checking on that.
