good scope for a good price – 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:
the scope has many useful functions, the price is very good. can be connected to a PC via USB, comes with SW. comes with 2 probes in the package. is very light and easily portable.
Cons:
when switched on, the selected language was Chinese, it took a while to figure out how to change it. Only a Chinese paper manual is included. The power cord is Chinese? definitely not European. you will need to get another cord (or a socket adapter) to be able to plug it in.
Other:
English manual is included on the attached CD. according to the web, the scope can be hacked to 100MHz, even with the latest FW. didn't try this so far, though.
Bottomline:
seems to be a good entry scope for people who want to start working with scopes, but will probably be very useful far beyond that.
