Digital Storage Oscilliscope

Looking for recommendations on an inexpensive Digital Storage Oscilliscope that can hook up to your PC.

The lower cost USB Oscilloscopes have limited bandwidth and sampling capability. So it depends on what signals you are intending to capture which will determine the oscilloscope. I have several standalone Tektronix/Rigol plus a few National Instrument data capture cards that I use for logging.

I don’t have a usb scope but was thinking of getting the $200 Hantek 1gig sample just for laptop use. Useful since the laptop is battery run and will be isolated from common ground. Needed for certain measurements.

I was looking at the Hantek scopes, but did not see the one you mentioned. Do you have a link for it?

6254BC. 250mhz 1gig sample/second

About $208 from Hantek official store on AliExpress

Only 64k memory so big limitation. I paid $400 for my Rigol but it’s a much better than the Hantek.
