Does anybody have a Siglent scope? Are they OK?

I'm thinking of getting one of these as a gift, for a guy who has a
ratty ole Kikusui analog scope.

200 MHz is about right for snooping some Raspberry Pi Pico ports and
stuff.

I have a Siglent SDS2104X. 200MHz cheap scope, very happy with it. I bought it since almost all the Siglent stuff can be hacked, so I hacked mine to 700MHz bandwidth, saved several 1000 dollars by doing that.

I also have the Rigol HDO1074, also hacked, but the great thing about this one is the 12bit ADC

If you check out the EEVblog forums, you can see which ones can be hacked

Everything is kindergarten toy after RIGOL DHO924S:

https://www.rigolna.com/products/rigol-digital-oscilloscopes/dho900/

I purchased one and it is my everyday scope now. Also have 4GHz 40GS/S
Lecroy WR640Zi for high frequency stuff but it sees very little use as it is
8-bit and VERY noisy so it is only used when it is really needed.

We already have many of those in the company and everybody is very happy
with those.

Probably will buy another one for my other workdesk -- at this price it
makes it worth just having one on each workdesk rather than moving a single
one between them.

we just got a Rigol DHO924S. 250MHz, 4 channels, 12 bit, 16ch logic analyser, 25MHz ARB generator, USB-C powered, and with a 100mm VESA mount so you can stick on an articulated arm, all for ~800€

We have a 7 GHz LeCroy but people don't like using it unless they
really have to. It doesn't make much sense.

Our standard scope is a 500 MHz Rigol.

(That one has been upgraded to 500)

We have Python libraries so we can use them in automated test stands.

I ordered the Siglent from Amazon, as a gift.
