Awesome little scope! – RIGOL DS1052E 5.6" TFT LCD 50MHz 2-Channel Digital Color Storage Oscilloscope Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Lightweight and VERY portable. I carry it around in my backpack!
The screen is bright, the refresh rate is pleasing, and the math functions are DREAM! Roll mode is nice for things like temperature monitoring.
Cons:
Lots of digging through menus, but not counter intuitive.
Other:
Nice screen makes up for small body.
Bottomline:
This is the cutest little awesome scope ever. Its tiny but the screen is big and bright. Resolution isn't crazy but it doesn't need to be. Export the data into matlab if you need more power for goodness sakes. This is a make or break item for hobbyists. Scopes are just too expensive and USB scopes are useless.
