I got a new old oscilloscope for very cheap!

Now to get some expensive probes for it...

Old test equipment is so great. This thing sold for $20,000 in 1995, and I got it for a little over $100 shipped. Still works fine, aside from some dings and scratches.

Performance is better than anything I could buy new for less than $1000, aside from memory depth and sheer weight.

And it was designed to last. Deals with post-Y2K dates like nobody's business.

@Zuph No joke, that looks a lot like the oscilloscopes we used in college, and they were old then.

@faoluin it's just sightly older then the scopes I learned on, but 500 MHz and 2GS/s, sweet sweet nectar
