Hantek do make USB oscilloscopes, the 1008 is not one of them. Sometimes Hantek call it a DAQ and sometimes they do describe it as an oscilloscope.
It has a very low acquisition rate (2.4MS/s), almost no memory (4k points) and only 100kHz bandwidth. (All those stated as "single channel", so likely to be worse by a factor of the number of channels in use.)
It is not a logic analyser (far too slow).
The Rigol 1054Z is a real (if entry level) digital scope.
but it is a scope in the conventional sense - it's about £60 so it will be very limited.
You could get a Pico 2204A for £118, much better quality product and with known decent software.
The Pico has a lower bandwidth (10MHz) than the Hantek 2 channel scope but a faster sampling rate, which will mean that in practice it is actually usable over the stated bandwidth. the software is the same as for the 6424E which I am currently road testing on E14 (but of course the hardware being very different it can't do all the same stuff.)
Thank you. You managed to tell me what I couldn’t discern from the available details and will be looking into the pico.
Thanks for this, I've been using one of those DIY DSO mini scopes and I feel I want to "graduate" to an actual beginner scope. I looked at the Rigol 1054Z thanks to your suggestion and it seems the best bang for the buck scope I've seen so far
I Have been searching for an affordable usb scope for a few months and ran across the Hantek 1008. Anyone familiar with it or ever used one? I am wondering if it would possibly be a ok-decent low cost bench scope. I may occasionally use it on a car audio system that’s already installed, but that would be the exception to removing it from the workbench. I’ve had a Rigol 1054Z but sold it. I didn’t like having to take it off the bench and store it when not in use. I am curious if the 8 channels is a gimmick or legit. Or is it more of an overpriced logic level analyzer?
thanks for the input and any suggestions or ideas.
