I am extremely satisfied with my Siglent SDS1104X-E.

Couldn't help upgrade it further so now 200MHz is working.

The Digital protocol decoding was fiddly at first try, but got that working

- Internal FFT mode,
- Bode Plot Mode,
- Superb display,
- Remote View and Remote Control Mode
- comes with good probes,
- excellent documentation,
- Siglent have been working and giving us new firmware updates as well.

Very, very happy with it.

That's on the DSO front. If I do get an old analogue Tektronix for cheap
locally, I'll get that too.
