Rigol DS1054Z Best Selling Oscilloscope Find out with the DS1054Z is one of the top selling oscilloscopes in the WORLD since its release in September 2014. Read the reviews! Let our customers tell you what they think of this unit. Schools love them, companies love them, students and home hobbyist love the DS1054Z. Backed by a 30 day money back guarantee you cannot go wrong with this unit. DS1054Z Features 50 MHz Analog Bandwidth Total of 4 Analog Channels Maximum Waveform Capture Rate of up to 30,000 wfms/s Includes 4 RP2200 150 MHz Passive HighZ Probes Low noise floor USB Host for Thumb Drive Large 7" Display 12 Mpts of Memory - upgradeable to 24 Customer Feedback "I have used the scope for basic measurements so far, mostly audio signals and comparisons of such signals. It works well and the construction is as good as that of expensive top-brand items. The packaging was adequate and protects the instrument well. RIGOL has tried hard to pass themselves as a decent company to buy equipment from and they have succeeded, at least with this scope. I have used lots of lab equipment for many years in college labs and this would fit perfectly in every lab, given its low price, specifications and support. Highly recommended for tight budgets and high expectations" Customer Submitted Image UltraVision Rigol's innovative UltraVision technology provides a deeper memory depth of 12Mpts standard and is upgradeable to 24 Mpts (with purchase of MEM-DS1000Z). The DS1054z also provides the ability to quickly focus in on certain piece of a recorded waveform. UltraVision × Full Visibility × Full Visibility The large 7" display of the DS1054z, with a resolution of 800 X 480 pixels makes it possible to view all channels on a single screen. This makes for better usability and more efficient analysis

The build quality is very solid (you will actually use the carrying handle!), the display is clear, the controls feel good. The fan is relatively loud (indeed, a common hack is to replace the fan with a quieter one), but its noise is neutral and I don't find it particularly annoying. The intensity knob, which functions as the all-purpose rotary knob for many menu items, is also the select button for those items, and as others have reported, it's very easy to accidentally slip to the next menu item when selecting. I suggest using your thumb to press the knob while holding the top of the scope. Rigol should probably change this to a knob with detents.
The software is fine (the menus take a bit of getting used to, though I can't compare to any other vendor), though occasionally its Chinese roots shine through with minor errors in English. It has on-screen help that comes in very handy. At any time, you press Help, and then press the control you want to learn about. I'd love to see this style of help on all kinds of devices.
Only a getting started guide is included as a printed manual. The full manual is a PDF. It's detailed enough, but is written with a knowledgeable user in mind -- it doesn't explain to a novice like me why and when I would use a particular option. Given how incredibly popular this model (and its older siblings) has been with hobbyists, Rigol might do well to write a manual geared towards beginner, a general digital oscilloscope primer in essence. For example, the manual doesn't explain why you would choose a lower or higher memory depth, even though it clearly affects display refresh speed. (The manual reminds me of a typical SLR camera manual, which is great if you understand photography well, and useless if you don't!)
[Edit 1: I've since heard conflicting reports on this point; the manual says it does have a hardware counter, and indeed it does provide higher resolution frequency measurement. But other reports, I forget where, say it does it in the FPGA rather than in special dedicated hardware. Sp take the frequency counter comment with a grain of salt. The importance of understanding digital sampling remains totally valid, however, since it also affects waveform capture, etc.] Unlike more expensive models, this oscilloscope does not have a hardware frequency counter, so all frequency measurements are calculated from the waveform captured by the DACs. This means that if you feed it a signal faster than 1/2 the sample rate, the counted frequency will be incorrect due to aliasing. This isn't in any way a criticism of the oscilloscope, just a reminder to the novice to learn how digital sampling works to make sure you know what the inherent limitations of the instrument are. [/edit]
Rigol offers software for Windows only, but the scope's USB and Ethernet interfaces are totally industry-standard, so there is third-party software for both Mac and Linux to connect to it. I'm not much of a programmer, but Rigol's programming guide appears decent.
The scope includes 4 probes with removable hooks, ground wires, ground springs, yellow tip insulators, and a tool for adjusting probe compensation. The yellow tip insulators don't really stay on well at all. (I've heard others have gotten replacements from Rigol for free.) I've got no basis of comparison on probe quality, but they don't in any way feel cheap. The manuals for the probes list the parts, but don't tell you how to use them. I had to research that on my own. (Newbie tip: the ground wires pull off, then you can wiggle the ground spring onto the probe tip, essentially giving the probe a ground tip parallel to the signal tip, for measuring chips and stuff, or for plugging into headers.) The included power cord is a lovely right-angle cord so you can push the scope flush to a wall. A USB cord and certificate of calibration are also included.
[Edit 2] Since I originally wrote this review, I've gotten more use out of the scope, and my satisfaction has only increased. It's easy to get it to do what you want, and easy to use software to grab screenshots directly to the computer via USB or Ethernet. Two thumbs up! [/edit]
Price and shipping were fine and the scope has had a full check out and works.
This model, for me, is a replacement for my now aging DS1052E and I've been using it quite a bit for several weeks.
You get *most* of the same features in addition to the updates/upgrades from the 1052E. The reason it's not
five stars is because some of the more advanced stuff is not available to *unlock* unless you buy the upgrades
from RIGOL, but that's the norm these days. The only other thing I don't necessarily like is that there is no longer
a 50% trigger button, which would make the process of getting the right trigger level a slightly less time consuming ...
Besides those little points, which aren't really a big deal for a beginner, this really is one of the best entry level
scopes you can get for the price.
Easy "upgrade" to 100mhz.
Includes 4 probes
Interface can be clunky: For example, if you want your Y reference to be center instead of ground, you have to open the menu and set it every time you use the scope. It's also tedious to set up different measurements (like peak to peak), then have to clear them all in order to set different ones or put them in a different order.
Screenshots are slow.
I don't have the expertise to comment on the more technical features of the scope, but as a hobbyist it's great to have a trustworthy tool. It's like a torque wrench, once you have a good one you'd never do work without it.
But here are a few negatives.
1. Fan is very noisy.
2. The knob that is used to select/enter menu items is very sensitive. When pressing the knob, the selection will sometimes change just before it is entered. So, a few times I thought I was working with one mode selected but it had selected another mode. Why this knob is not detented I have no idea.
3. Difficult to tell which channel the lower knobs currently control. You have to remember to look on the screen. Otherwise, if you press the channel button when the channel is already selected then it will turn off.
3. Very minor points: I wish the menus could be hidden to increase the view area.
