So today eagle eye is looking at this one. There are lots of oscilloscopes on the market.
But most of them are not that type of that you expect actually. So what happens you actually don’t get what you like.
So among all those in the market, there are a few products, you may say best in the market.
Before saying best or something equivalent to best in your language that product needs to fulfill some criteria.
Like quality, built quality, features, usability, durability, price and user satisfaction.
Today I have brought to you one of the best among all others, Rigol DS1102E Digital Oscilloscope.
If you are a professional or if you are a novice that doesn’t matter.
Whatever you are this one will suit you, and you can use it any kind of condition.
This oscilloscope, is the best among all others by Rigol in this price tag.
This one is a high-performance device that is an actually designed with dual channels and also one trigger channel that is external.
It comes with 20 kinds of wave parameters when you are to auto measuring something, and it contains 10 voltages and 10-time parameters.
It has also the cursor mode, in which, the users can easily measure anything by moving that cursor they have.
Manual, track and auto, these three types of cursoring are available in this machine which is optional.
It also provides high performance, powerful and stable software with it. The software they provide is called “Ultrascope”.
By which you can capture and measure a wave, then easily handle remote or local operations, and also there is a feature for saving the waves as BMPtext or even in xls format. And you can print them also.
I guess you are thinking to check out the price on Amazon. Okay before all that checking out just complete this rigol oscilloscope review. And I wish that you won’t be dissatisfied after seeing that providing lots of features in a simple price tag.

Before reviewing this product I have researched on the market a lot. I have practically tested it and also took some users opinion who is/ are using this machine.
As I’ve already mentioned that this product is one of the best for any kind of people whereas he is an electrical hobbyist or an engineer.
Check out Rigol DS1054Z Review of 2018
There are some good things when using this machine I have noticed that thing.
- I have built several high-frequency oscillators to take a test of this machine. Then this oscilloscope worked and also it works up to the particularly mentioned bandwidth and there weren’t any issues even now if I test this once again there won’t be any issue.
- This machine has some very good digital filtering, by which you can easily get the signal which you are expecting.
- It’s triggering system is pretty good, actually works without any kind of noise or a single hitch. And I’ve tried some other expensive scopes but sometimes this Rigol’s one is far better than those.
- There is a digital storage in it. And it is easy to use.
- Rigol includes a USB port in this DS1120E, that’s placement is good and perfect for image storing.
- It’s built quality is so hard and durable than some others.
But without these, if I say some negative things about it then it may be the first that the machine is some kinda old fashioned. Its buttons placement is followed that old trends when it was starting a period of the oscilloscope. And this old trends actually makes the control sometimes a bit hard, makes our mind sometimes some kinda zigzag through.
This is the good and bad things in my perspective. But now pros and cons. Though pros and cons phrase actually stands for the advantages of a product or disadvantages of a product. Though I’ve just finished providing some kind of pros and cons but not pros and cons, now I’ll provide the real pros and cons, which actually based on not only by my perspective but also those experts who are hardcore user some kind.
Read the Hantek DSO5202P Review and buying guides.
So here ends these pros and cons section. Now while comparing with another oscilloscope in the market, some questions may roam on your mind. Okay so now one more section which I’m making to make those queries out of your mind.
Frequently Asked Questions ( FAQ )
If you are someone professional about scopes and if you deal regularly with these types of scopes then you will understand why this machine is for the money. When you have some real works to do this machine comes forward and this comes out handy. So it just works great.
