Re: Opinion on 'scope selection


scopes take up very little room until......the collection grows past 3 and you get into the big beauties.....unfortunately I agree you do need 2....(especially when they are just two channel os why I have more than 4...)...and no matter eventually you will need  a spare to do a repair to the other.......

So the question is what does your wife like/collect? something to consider.....potential "bribe" LOL

Remember, two oscilloscopes is why your car has a spare tire.

  Hi Paul,
Good points - yes the 453 looks to be a bit easier on the repair side, and I de recall which end of a soldering iron to pick up. Even better, two scopes...for repair and a wife will kill me.

Kind regards,John

Try to get at least 2.  You need a scope to fix a scope :-)

From the point of view of ease of repair, the 465B wins.

2465A (= 4ch, 350MHz) would be my choice.
