Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"Their software and hardware are integrated, so we don't have to spend a lot of time processing the data.""The user interface is very user-friendly. You can use a lot of functions in their scope and will provide them for you. You can update the scope's software by asking Keysight to update the software when you want.""It's easier to automate and connect with multiple devices, and at the same time with laptops.""Its versatility and accuracy are the most valuable features.""The user interface is very simple. Everyone can use it.""While it depends on the field, the learning curve is usually really quick.""Its 4 port has true differential with quite a few de-embedding features. It goes up to 40 GHz with high performance.""The user interface is very good, very graphical. It provides a lot of help in using and operating it."

Cons
"Sometimes, it's quite hard to get the technical support to come onsite. If we run into a hardware, measurement, or software issue, we may have to wait a long time for them to come.""I would like more accuracy, particularly for multiport measurements.""I would like more customized functions, so we can do the programming and definitions ourselves. There is an automation flow to capture this signal, and we would like to do this ourselves.""While the user interface is good with respect to instrumentation, but with respect to documentation, I do not like it. Its documentation is slightly bad. It was not organized properly. The way it's organized is very difficult to understand, so it takes lot of time to search for one thing in particular.""They can improve, but I don't know how.""The integration between different software and hardware panels could be improved. In the software, it's not as strong as the other solutions.""The user interface is not that good. It's not very intuitive. It's functional, but it's not designed for ease of operation. It's designed for functionality.""Every component has a manufacturing tolerance. I hope Keysight software can help with the tolerance loss in manufacturing variance, which can be ten percent or five percent. In the real world, we cannot fire a really perfect test with very smooth impedance. I would like to see Keysight provide a solution to solve the issue of loss of manufacturing variance."

"The memory needs improvement.""I had to change the probes to higher frequency probes."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The major factor influencing the decision-makers is the price.""The pricing is good for what they offer.""If we rented the product, it would be more affordable than buying new.""The pricing is on the high side.""It's very expensive because this type of equipment is not so common. For a company buying it, this is a big investment.""It would be good if it were a little bit cheaper, of course.""We are looking at $600,000 and it's obviously expensive, but compared to others, everybody is in the same ballpark.""The cost is always a struggle. We always wish that we could do more for less."

"For the 4-channel big display, you have to upgrade to 500 MHz.""The pricing was good."
