I was thinking of purchasing the Digital DS05072 on Amazon that mr.fab mentioned, but tonight they are no longer available. Oh well maybe I just missed another bargain, but it seems strange hey are already gone.

They had a MSO scope for $40 more with logic leads too. There are a few folks that did order the DSO5072 (eevblog) and they received tracking numbers. We'll see if it's a scope or a box with junk. At least Amazon covers it.

I ended buying a HP 54645D for $40 on CL... couldn't pass up on the deal.

Has anyone ordered one of these Hantek scopes? They do use PayPal, but I'm not sure how safe the purchase might be.

That scope is listed over $400 on Ebay for 200Mhz. Around $200 for a 50Mhz. Some thing is wrong with that listing. Email them first.

Just a quick report. I ended up ordering that unbranded DSO5072P 70-MHz scope that "Mr.Fabe" had uncovered here for $99. With the $15 coupon, and a $60 discount for applying for an Amazon credit card (like I need another one!), I was left with about $30, which I covered with some Hilton points my company lets me keep for business travel. Net cost was basically zip, so I felt it was worth the risk. It took about 2 weeks, and the scope arrived today ... turns out, as some suspected, it's a fully branded Hantek 5072P (I guess they had to remove the branding for the ad photo). Brand new, in the box with all the accessories; doesn't look like a refurb or a return to me. I fired it up, and all looks good so far. Only minor gripe is the 40K waveform memory ... most new-generation digital scopes routinely have a lot more.

I guess Hantek is perhaps moving on from this particular model, and is clearing out. I didn't really "need" another scope, but I must say that it's pretty swell to have a 7" color screen, and a 5" case depth for my overcrowded bench. I will likely apply the 200 MHz upgrade hack for this model that's been floating around the EEVblog & YouTube for awhile ... it seems fairly straightforward & low risk, and it will significantly widen the usable bandwidth. But for now, for my radio tasks, 70-MHz is plenty, particularly when used to complement my 400 MHz analog.

Very pleased with the outcome.

Jim

Thanks for your follow-up on the purchase.
I'm glad everything worked out well for you!
