  1. After that disappointing tektronic scope, my friend found another
    scope which appears to be in working condition. It's an Enertc
    Schumberger 5220 with 3 chans and 100Mhz bandwidth. We don't know if
    this is any good, does anybody know how much would this be worth?

    Thanks!!!

  2. Looks like a very good scope for a hobbyist like yourself, and for me.

    It is sold on ebay right now and the bid is 61dollars, plus freight
    costs, of course.

    100 dollars would be a very good price for this scope.

    If somebody wanted to sell me one for anything up to 200 dollars today I
    would buy it, after checking carefully that is works.

    I live in a remote part of the world, so I have to count on extra freight
    costs, and I cannot buy from ebay, that is why I would be ready to pay
    200 dollars for such a scope if delivered to my door.
    If I lived in Paris/France or California I would pay 100 dollars for it.

    The name of the company is "Enertec Schlumberger" if you want to look
    after facts about it on the web. (it is important to spell correctly to
    find facts on internet)

    It is a French company with localities in many french cities, I think the
    main office is in Paris.

    Not that I'll stop living if I don't know, but I'm curious approximately
    where you live (half way up K2 :-] ), and what stops you from buying from
    EBAY? I thought everyone in every part of the universe could avail
    themselves of Ebay.

  4. Not much point if the shipping costs upwards of US$200 like it does
    for me if I want to ship a o-scope over :(

  5. In the northern part of Sweden, 800 km (500miles) north of the nearest big city.
    (We had two weeks of summer this year, and I missed it because of temporary illness.)

    <http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=45014&item=3842273012&rd=1&ssPageName=WD2V>

    Look at the numbers, current bid = 90 dollars.
    Shipping cost to USA via Airmail is $117 & By Surface it will be $75.

    But there are probably more costs involved, like transferring costs for money, etc..
    And there is no way for me to test it before I buy it.

    That is why I would not take such a risk and all the costs involved,
    but I would gladly pay 200 for it if I could buy it locally.

    I was close. Not quite as high, but I'll bet nearly as much snow?

    Is it that you could buy from Ebay (you haven't made any life long enemies
    there :-] ), but shipping hassle/costs discourage you?

    If you don't mind my asking, what was disappointing about it. Was it
    purchased on ebay? Item not as described? Just wondering because I'm still
    in the market for a new scope but am hesitant to buy on from ebay.

  8. erm nope. the tek scope was disappointing because we thot we finally
    found a usable one for an affordable price locally. but subsequently,
    the comments made it unattractive as we're likely to need to fix it
    somewhat. The experienced folks here don't recommend we try it being
    the obvious noobs tat we are.

  9. purchased on ebay? Item not as described? Just wondering because I'm still
    I've had overall good experiences buying test equipment on eBay. But
    on principle I don't recommend you buy potentially quite old, complex
    equipment on eBay unless you are capable of diagnosing and repairing
    it.

    It's a very good scope...
    Only one little problem may happen : the power filter burns in some serials
    numbers...and it's not recommended to leave the scope on when you are
    away!!!
    Except that problem, it's very good, with a beautiful image.
