Deep and Optimized Record Length
Tektronix MDO3000
Deep and Optimized Record Length MDO3000

Deep record length offers more waveform details without under sampling

✔ 10 Mpoints record length on all channels, standard
Keysight X3000T
Deep and Optimized Record Length X3000T

Waveform details lost due to smaller record length and undersampling*

4 Mpoints record length, reduced to 2 Mpoints when channels are interleaved

Lower Cost of Ownership

When comparing oscilloscopes, don’t forget to look at the “hidden” costs to get the configuration you need (in US $)
