2 reviews for Rigol DS2102A 100MHz Digital Oscilloscope

  1. Gord R

    Rigol 100 Mhz oscilloscope .
    Unit delivered at exactly the right time , as requested , undamaged and all parts included .

    operating manual is a little dissapointing , but I’ve not got into it in depth as yet ,… would like to increase the size of figures on screen …. but ,
    a very nice peice of equipment

  2. Chris C

    DS2102A is excellent value for ££s
    Thanks RIGOL-uk once again for your help… Not many companies are offering this level of service. I’m very happy with both the DS2102 and the DSA 815. Not only are they remarkable value for money, they are excellent pieces of test equipment, both in terms of specification and in ease of use.

    Best Regards
