RIGOL Oscilloscopes Review

The most valuable feature would be the bandwidth


What is our primary use case?

It is a general purpose scope with 4-channel 300 MHz. 

The application space that this solution targets is the embedded system of my products.

Typically, the signals that we are measuring are digital, Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), wireless, and Zigbee.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature would be the bandwidth.

What needs improvement?

The memory needs improvement.

I had to change the probes to higher frequency probes.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is field upgradable. I bought it on sale, then it kicked in 500 MHz bandwidth improvement. That's what was available.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We are using the full bandwidth.

How are customer service and technical support?

I have never needed the technical support.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We bought this solution for because we needed higher bandwidth and more channels.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

For the 4-channel big display, you have to upgrade to 500 MHz.

The pricing was good.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated Teledyne LeCroy, Keysight, and RIGOL.

We did not obtain a demo before purchasing.

What other advice do I have?

There is not really a learning curve.

The user interface is normal. It is not the old-school style. So, it's easy to use based on the fact that I've used other relatively new scopes.

We are sometimes using the product to support connect devices for IoT development.

Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
