I bought 3 pieces of Siglent gear a couple years ago. I bought a Dual Power
Supply, a bench multimeter, and the 4 channel 200 MHz oscilloscope. I have
been happy with all of it. Surprisingly, I find that the oscilloscope gets
the least amount of use. It probably has to do with my level of electronics
knowledge / understanding. I would recommend Siglent though from my
experience with them. I thought about buying used equipment, but I was
concerned that it might be out of calibration.

Take my opinion with a grain of salt. I don't have the experience that 99%
of the people on this list have.
