    This is by far the best hobby oscilloscope has to offer! Although it is a $700 USBee AX Test Pod clone, it acomplishes any task a usual electronics hobbyist would ever need to do! Even if the hardware is not that ground-breaking in therms of performance, it compensates with it's extremely complex PC software: no unsigned drivers, Windows x64 support (even Win8!), a ton of functions (oscilloscope, logic analyzer, signal generator, etc.), as opposed to the other cheap USB oscilloscopes.


    As stated by almost all reviewers, because it is a clone, the original software designers took advantage of one of it's design flaw (EEPROM not write protected), leading to an erased memory => "Device not recognized" (see forums below). Thus I recommend that, before you even connect it for the first time to your PC, to cut the EEPROM's 7th pin and connect to it's 8th one, enabling it's hadware read-only operation, bypassing any erors with even the latest software version.


    Don't forget to cut the EEPROM's 7th pin and connect to it's 8th one, it is mandatory if you wish to use it with the latest official software.


    Best purchase so far! This unit, combined with a pair of decent oscilloscope probes (for ex. SKU101452) enables you to measure signals up to +/-100V (theoretically, but it's better than it's hardware-limited range of +/-10V).
