When you look at a box like that make sure that probes are gotten easily and cheaply. Probes actually can wear out and some are fragile. So you may have to get extras.

Apparently you get that combo also in an “embedded” version:

I considered that, since I got a decent voltmeter and a counter this way. But most analysers are really big and sometimes come with quite noisy fans. The fans I could swap fir quieter ones but the footprint is quite some estate.
The analogue scope I can put standing upright on the floor. But the analyser I can’t see (literally too) this way.
But I’m not in a hurry … let’s see.
