    I suppose that's your new DSO? That's the exact same model I've been saving up for! I believe it's a decent scope considering the price, and Dave's teardown on eevblog is somewhat convincing...

    Do have a great time with your new scope!

    First things. Change that yellow slip ring on the CHAN 2 probe to purple to match the scope CHAN 2 color.

    Second thing. Set the probe attenuation to 1X and the INPUT channels to 1X.
    Use the Y measure cursors and take some voltage measurements.

    Now change the probe attenuation to 10X and the INPUT setting as well.
    Repeat the Y measurements and see if the scope took the 10X setting into account.
    If there is a discrepancy then you need to update the firmware.

    (Another check would be to see what version firmware is on your scope.)

    Seeing them on Amazon and maybe it is time to pull the trigger on one. I have a few older Tektronix analog scopes but that's it. Seeing the new ones for $379 which isn't bad at all.

    Enjoy your new scope. I got mine in late October and am very pleased with it.

    Already caught that and corrected. That was a close one. I may have ruined the scope operating it with mismatched colors and violating the warranty! ;)

    Checked. I have the lasted version. Thanks!

    All of the features that you get with this thing is amazing! I like the separate controls for the 2 channels. I always disliked the single control on the Rigol. I was a bit worried about the color for channel 2. Rigol uses a purple for FFT. It is very hard to read. The colors aren't bad on the Siglent. Though I wish these companies would allow color changes for the display. Lots of color blind males out there. ;)

    I don't like the power button. I think it is in an inconvenient place for me and my giant hands. ;) The pulsing when off is a bit strange. :eek:

    I wish you could turn off all of the status and menu items to give a little more screen real estate.
