Default Differential Scope - PicoScope 4444

Just arrived and it gives me lots of trouble to hook it up in my program, because there is no programmers guide yet. But once I manage to fully utilize it, I am sure that it will rock hard!

Fancy!

How much does that cost compared to say, a differential probe for an oscilloscope? What are the advantages of that to a differential probe, other than not taking up inputs on your scope?

Differential probes are (insert bad words here) expensive.

this is much more affordable than getting four differential probes but for high voltages (>50V) you still need special attenuating probes (which however don't need any power source, since they are powered from the scope directly). For ripple measurements the standard provided probes will do just fine.

You can read the advantages of this scope thoroughly here.
