Firstly let me apologize if this is the wrong subdirectory. I didn't find one specific to just electronics and suppose the computing section may be too limited to apply or be seen by many. If it needs to be moved, no problem. For quite some time I have been aware that I have spent rather a great deal of money on computers and especially in the graphics department - video cards and monitors. It seems to me there is no need to duplicate this expense and often the options are less powerful than what is in my PC. So I have wondered why more measuring devices that display an output haven't made more use of what most people already have. In this thread I will concern myself with just Oscilloscopes. As of a year or two ago the vast majority if not all USB scopes and even those with moderate self-contained CPUs that only lack just the display section, have been written off as mere toys. With the advent of such devices as https://www.picotech.com/oscilloscope/2200/picoscope-2200-portable-oscilloscopes I'm wondering if that has changed or specifically if anyone here has had any experience, good or bad with such scopes. Is progress occurring?
