Pros:
This really is an excellent little scope for the price. It has a lot of features that are missing from my Teks that are 4x the price. Reasonable low signal level performance and the averaging works quite well. The bright display is easy to read from almost any angle. Small and light. Will almost fit in the toolbox. Perfect for field work. An integrated storage tray for the probes would have been nice.
Cons:
Came with useless power cord Keypress beep gets very annoying, very fast. Wasn't packed for shipping well, but did arrive in once piece.
Other:
Don't hesitate, this thing is great. It really gives scope 4 times the price a real run for their money. In many ways it's superior to those instruments. I'm thinking about ordering a bunch more for the office.
Bottomline:
If you're looking for a solid basic scope for looking at audio and logic signals, I think it's really hard to go wrong with this one. The price is amazing, and the quality of the unit really impressed me.
