    Hi gang,
    Sometimes I develop irrational attachment to test equipment.
    If you had a 100MHz two channel analog storage scope with a dying
    storage tube and a cheap chinese 100MHz two channel color LCD scope,
    which would you keep?
    The CRT scope is a HP1741A, it still works in conventional mode and is
    finicky in storage mode. (Hard to find the right write current.)
    The LCD scope is a Rigol DS5102C. It works but the noisy trace
    compared to a nice clean CRT display is aesthetically displeasing to
    my elevated sense of beauty. Hey, I still use a Tek 547 for the razor
    sharp and needle thin trace. But the USB connection on the Rigol for
    getting screen capture is just soooo handy.

    Hmm, new wallpaper. I guess the picture of a Technics RS-1500 with the
    iso-loop is getting old...

    Oh yeah. 'cept for ebay, won't touch it; too much spam.

    They both serve a useful purpose. You sometimes need USB and you
    sometimes need a decent trace. You have to keep both until you get a
    scope that has both characteristics.
