Very cool! You'll be able to see what the holy heck the clock signal in the various delays are doing, for a start :)

ehh the basics are mostly the same... it's more a matter of learning the control layout than anything.

anyway, looks like fun.

How do you like it compared with the analog scope you already had?

I've been looking for a decent low-cost digital storage scope.  I really like the higher price Agilent ones I've used, but the less expensive off-brand ones I've tried have always been a bit choppy and slow, to the point that I preferred the old analog scopes (unless I absolutely needed the FFT feature).  If this one has a decent processor and sampling rate, it could be what I am looking for.
