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

"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."

"It has digital scopes with a high bandwidth and digitized signal. It can do whatever you want with the signal. Since its user-friendly software allows you to work with the signal, which is pretty cool.""I trust Tektronix for its accuracy. The probes of solution fit my application. E.g., the speed of probes, the way that it is using probes with designs, and the probes' size.""The most valuable features are everything they do. We primarily use the O-scopes and they help us figure out what's going wrong with our scope out signals.""Valuable features include that it's multi-channel... and has bandwidth filtering. The user interface is good.""The Ipath and measurements are fantastic and simple to implement.""It has very fast response with deep memory.""It provides you the best way to view information without opening multiple applications, like a single solution.""It has a good user interface. It's easy to use, easy to read. It's intuitive."

"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."

"I am not utilizing the full bandwidth of this product.""I would like if they could have more customer support engagement.""There is room for improvement when it comes to the screen size. I don't really have a lot of complaints but screen size would be the biggest thing.""I know you can get the Bit Masks but it's generally really expensive to get the eye diagrams and Bit Masks with it. I wish they were included or cheaper.""I would like to see more integration into machine learning because that's what we try to apply it to.""There was a learning curve, which was a little tricky at times. Getting used to the GUI took time because we had to learn the different features.""If they could make the user interface even more intuitive that would help. If they could make it easier to read, to know where the buttons are, that's all I need.""The power of the computer inside is weak. Sometimes I send a lot of data and I'll feel the lag... I would like to see them improve the processing power."

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."

"The prices are compatible with what they offer. Going forward, I would like them to become more competitive and dominant with their pricing in the market.""They're all pretty expensive. If everything costs that much, I suppose the pricing is fair.""I would like to see a lower price.""It's cost-effective... It might cost a lot of money, but if we need it we buy it.""The pricing is not too high and not too low.""It could always be cheaper.""Isolated probes are good to have, as most of the scopes don't have it. It drives up the cost when you have to buy isolated probes.""Tektronix Oscilloscopes are really expensive for small businesses. The low-end scopes don't really compare performance-wise to what the other companies provide, like RIGOL . Mostly that just has to do with the software options."
