A follow on, bulk move, from Pocket ‘scope to deal with bench DSO is its own separate blog, rather than a small section in a blog about pocket oscilloscopes.

I had always been after a DS1052e/DS1054z, due to Dave’s EEVBlog videos, but after reading Owon SDS7102 vs Rigol DS1102E vs Rigol DS1052E Review, I realised that the Owon has more features (VGA, LAN and battery operation) as well as a better screen.
