I recently purchased the Rigol DS1054Z Digital Oscilloscope 50 Mhz, 4 Channels from Amazon.

Surprisingly it came with all the features that are normally paid extras without any time limit.

Very hard to beat at the price of $375 USD and free shipping.

I also understand that it can be upgraded to 100 Mhz with a very easy hack! This makes it the DS1104Z at $619 USD.

@gfull

you just cost me 285 ( $353).

I googled, and got carried away.

bought it from aliexpress, re- hacked with the upgrade.

So, I now have 4 scopes !!!!!

I have not opened mine as yet. First scope. Arrow.com had a 30% discount across most product lines that dropped the price to $244.30 and Fedex priority shipping free. I still had to pay customs that worked out to around 80USD.

Could not afford it really but at that price and free courier shipping it beat all deals hands down. Keep an eye out for their black Friday deals. IIRC last year they had some discount that you could buy and apply to future purchases.

I'm curious the apparently-hackable MSO5000 hasn't been mentioned here yet. There is a hacking discussion on eevblog, and while it's more expensive at $1000, it seems to be quite the deal.

So many reasons and possibilities I guess:
-a lot of people already had a decent but old scope (tektronix or similar) and are not gonna buy anything newer
-TONS of us already bought something dirt cheap and good enough like the DS1054Z
-it's too expensive for the "arduino crowd" (which is mostly what you find online...)
-a lot of people here also have an account in the other common sites (eevblog forum, hackaday, etc) and just discuss it there instead
etc.

The MSO5074 is a fantastic MSO indeed, especially with all options (essentially a MSO5354) at the base price. Personally I'm fairly happy with my "old" DS1054Z. Selling it would barely be worth the hassle ($200 or so) and the new scope with the optional PLA2216 probes is $1400. As nice as it looks, I don't think I'd get much out of it. I prefer to use a logic analyzer for most digital stuff (better decoder options, larger screen, better interface, etc) and as far as analog goes the DS1054Z is enough for the vast majority of use cases. 100->350MHz or 24->200MPts doesn't do much for me, and in the rare occasions where 100MHz isn't enough then I have scopes faster than the MSO5354 at work too.
