    ok so I need a Oscilloscope I am thinking this one would work good
    http://www.hantek.com/english/produce_list.asp?unid=62

    but I have some questions im assuming that these has a max voltage but I don't know what it is could I probe a 110v outlet with this?
    I dont plain on using it for any frequency higher then 1MHz on something like a square wave

    but I don't know what bandwidth is for sure is that how hi of a frequency it can measure

    I also was looking at this one as well it seems a lot better

    The first one that you have linked is purely USB, that means you need to connect it to a computer and that will be the screen for the O-scope.

    The bandwidth is just the range that the scope can read, so that one can read 0-40MHz, and the second 0-25MHz.

    The voltages that it can read are dependant upon the test leads and the voltage ranges that it has, most will go to 5/10/25V per division with 5 divisions per side of the axis, so its max with a standard test lead would be 25/50/125V peak, but with a 10X test lead you can muliply those numbers by 10, a 100X by 100 etc (usually the test lead will have a max voltage it can handle)

    Rigol DS1052E / DS1102E has been often mentioned as an excellent deal, on various web pages and blogs I've read.

    Try this site http://www.saelig.com/PSBEB100/PSBEB100005.htm. I recently bought one of these and it great. It has 60MHz 500MS/s 10Mpt 2 Ch and the price is great $349.00. the model is SDS6062. Saelig has a video on its operation review.
