    Hi experts,

    I've been looking for a spectrum analyzer (and network analyzer) for my own personal use on projects. I don't have a lot of money to spend, and I only need something that will work up to 2 GHz.

    So I' came across this USB based solution while doing the research online.


    Has any of you here had any experience using this device? what's its pros/cons compare to the more expensive Tektronix/Agilent instruments?

    You may not find anyone who is familiar with those devices. They look reputable but I have no way of knowing for sure.

    I doubt that they have the same performance capabilities or accuracy as the much more expensive Tek/Agilent instruments but they may be adequate for your requirements. They do have a 30 day money back guarantee so you could try one and see.

    I know nothing about that product, but I have seen a big drop in price of Asian spectrum analysers, complete with big colour LCD screens.

    They may not offer the exact performance of a top-brand device but might offer similar performance (and not much more price) to the USB based product in your link.
