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

Pros
The learning curve was really fast, which was also the reason for saving a lot on the budget.The user interface is absolutely great. It creates an easy working environment because it has well-integrated hardware and software. So, it is easy to use.It makes programming simpler.The user interface is very good. Their boards are reliable. We buy boards from them, they are reliable, and we don't have problems with them.Because their view is a graphical user interface (GUI), it's very easy to program the tool.I can automate a lot of testing very quickly. With just a push of a button, I can test hundreds of different scenarios without having to do all that manual testing myself.It saves me a lot of time. You can click a button and walk away, basically doing a week's worth of work in 20 minutes, it's a pretty good time saver.It took us less than a week to get integrated into the solution, which is very fast.

Cons
I would like to have more RF. They're going that way, but still there is some work that they have to do.The software has room for improvement.I would like more speed and a reduction in size.There is a learning curve. It takes one to two months to get acclimated to the tool.It took a good year until I felt proficient using the product, as It is a complex program. Their newest version has a less steep learning curve, but back closer to 15 years ago, it was a lot less user-friendly.National Instruments needs to be focusing on its 5G RF applications. They are aware of this, and that's where most of their R&D is going.I would like to see more of a tasking user base and documentation inside the instrument itself, rather than having to go online for it.I would like to see them increase the productivity and auxiliary functions.

The scopes should be more powerful for our tests. This is extremely important for our products. We need to reach the probing point in our products, and this is extremely hard for us sometimes.The customer relationship should be more advanced/developed. Documents on the website should be more accessible and easily understandable.

Pricing and Cost Advice
I have saved almost 50 percent of my total budget for a project by using their products.They have an initial investment cost, which is quite high. But, along the way, there is so much behind it that the product is really invaluable.It's a bit expensive. However, you get the entire package, not just the box. It's a box which supports older releases.The cost of the equipment has room for improvement. The pricing could improve.I would like more competitive pricing.It's reasonably priced for what we spend our money on in the lab. It's one of the lower-end purchases.These products are a very low-cost, effective alternative to traditional Big Iron ATE hardware.The price is a little steep. A lot of people, like our customers, use a different machine because of the price. The price has to come down a bit so we can do other tests without paying the equipment's high costs.
