    Default Wich Scope is better for PSU Testing

    So I think I'm gonna buy a scope next week.

    There are 2 products I had in mind.
    A Rigol VS5042 USB for about 430€uros and a a Rigol DS 1052e digital Scope for about 568€uros
    It should be able to make nice pictures.

    I'd prefer the real scope over the USB thing 'cause its quicker used (no need to start a computer, install drivers or so, just plug it in and use it)

    I have always used Tektronix, they have never let me down.
    Yes. One of the last commincations I had with Dave Hammock before he disappeared from the web was how a major brand single +12V rail PSU wasn't shutting down when shorted. We were literally arc welding with the PSU. Hopefully Dave's absense isn't due to the fact that he got over zealous with the welding.

    That's far out of budget so not an option...

    The Cheapest Völkner has is The TDS1001b for 914,38€uros.
