    http://www.thefamousbrandsoutlet.com/pc-based-usb-digital-storage-oscilloscope-dso-2090.html Hi all new to this forum, and was thinking of buying an oscilloscope, was wanting a PC based unit and was looking at this one, does anyone have any experience with this one or have any comments about it, or can someone recommend something better that costs about the same, I am new to using a scope and would like one that would be easy to use or learn with, don't know if this one would be user friendly or not, so if some one could help, thanks, Jeff.:D

    The frequency range looks decent.
    I 'd say the only concerns that come up are the diode clamped input protection and the OS compatibility.

    The first suggests that you should be extra careful with the input signal amplitude. The second leaves some uncertainty if it will be compatible with a Win7 system, if you have one. WinXP are the best bet with such systems, in my opinion.

    I wanted a cheap analogue of an oscilloscope myself. After turning down the PC soundcard option, due to its short frequency range, I think I 'll buy one of these:

    In case you plan to buy the o'scope I posted, make sure the company ships goods abroad. In fact, it would be better if you found the same o'scope in an international site.
