Are old OSCILLOSCOPES worth buying? I am talking purchasing them for under 50$....
Scopes like the TEKTRONIX 2465A
LECROY 7200A PRECISION DIGITAL OSC
I ask because I can't afford 100$+ for a newer one.
Why shouldn't I buy older o-scopes?
Why should I? (other than price,,, more features?)
I am asking this because I have never used an o-scope, I know what they are for, and don't know the limitations, and needs..
My desire is to use the o-scope to view different things. Like the communication of a device on a computer COM port. etc...
Should I get a digital o-scope over an analog?
Sorry I know I am opening a can of worms here, but I have no idea what Im doing here.. LOL (but that dosen't stop me from learning)
Mabee some of you can tell me what I might be able to do with these old scopes...
