    I have the Subject device, and am thinking about selling it. I bought it
    9 years ago, and doubt that I even plugged it in. I have no idea what I
    paid for it. I see a 4011A is selling for $335. Any idea what the price
    was those years ago, and what change the A introduced?

    Was there a CD or probes with it?
     
  2. The 4011 is selling for $149 But It Now, or lower with Make an Offer.

    One sold for $110, another for $142
    Probably little difference.

  4. How much higher?
    That's a mistake IMO, but good luck finding a sucker.
    Where are you selling it?, Ebay?
    To quote Darryl Kerrigan form The Castle "Tell him he's dreaming"
    But that's brand new and comes with a 2 year warranty.
    Yours is almost 10 years old, is technically an older model , 2nd hand, no
    warranty, and you haven't even tested it yet.
    You'll be lucky to get $150 for it, that's about the going rate for a basic
    used function generator like this (hence a couple for sale at this price or
    less). Recent eBay auctions basically determine the current going rate.

    Why even fork out $150 for the B&K?

    You can get a brand new 5MHz FG for $219.00 or less and free shipping.
    With a one year warranty, and better specs by the way.

    No I'm not affiliated with the seller I am looking for a FG though and
    that one looks pretty good for the money.
     
  6. I wouldn't, but looks like some people are paying almost up to that price.
    Yes, these asian no-name ones are getting pretty good value these days.
    If you only need a basic 2MHz unit then new ones are even cheaper again:

    $109

    One might want to consider a unit with "Arbitrary" abilities so that one
    could create custom wave forms to do things like generate burst of
    digital signals or custom slops etc..

    The cost difference is worth it in my opinion.. The Asian market has
    some acceptable ones out there.

    Well I'm looking but it's going to have to wait maybe till XMAS. I
    just put up eavestrough and did some landscapeing $$. But if I see
    something thats to good to pass up I might buy now.

    Yes an arbitray function would be nice.
