    Anyone got any experience?

    Don't need anything with the accuracy of a CRT oscilloscope but ease of setup, repeatability, portability and convenience are more important.

    Do you mean like a portable battery-powered oscilloscope?

    Just a basic one wot you can plug into PC. Only need one channel.

    i've been drooling over one of those for a while now, i wouldn't waste money on a single channel one though. at least dual channel with logic analyizer > 10mhz.

    i've played with the software and it looks good, i haven't used the hardware so i couldn't tell you how well it works, sample rate and bit width of the adc will determine the performance, check this out:

    thats what i'd get, for the same price as one of the lower end picoscopes this is better in every way for the same price.
