My conclusion

Buy it! Buy it now!

Ok back to earth. I write this review about 1 month after purchase. And I’m really amazed. Really good manufacture quality, accuracy measurements, handy (integrated battery and wifi). So if you need fast measurements you don’t have to move whole PCB or device to your work station, find a power outlet, etc. just take oscilloscope, turn it on and you are ready to go. Price is out of space (in the good way).

Before I buy it I was finding good desktop oscilloscope, read all review what was on the internet and chat with many users. I decided to totally leave table oscilloscope after I make a table with good table oscilloscopes and prices. The price for quality desktop oscilloscope is out of this space. If you looking for an oscilloscope with touch screen etc.

I realized, really I need spend 1k $ for scope? And answer was no. In real I need just few things:

  • Handy control ( touch screen, or something similar ) – with this scope you can use the touchscreen on your tablet/phone or really good desktop application
  • 2 channels – this scope got 2 channels and 1 trigger so compare input and output to part of your PCB is no a problem
  • Price – this scope cost about 1/8 of good desktop oscilloscopes with the same parameters

Pros and cons


  • small dimmensions
  • build in battery
  • build in WiFi
  • quality manufactured
  • really good measurement accuracy
  • price and quality


  • not as accurate as desktop ones
  • not fast as desktop ones
