We spent 24 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top selections for this wiki. Troubleshooting complicated electronics would be next to impossible without an oscilloscope, and the handheld models on our list allow you to take this important diagnostic tool wherever you need to go. We've included options for everyone from professional electricians and mechanics to amateurs tinkering around in the workshop, ranked here by their accuracy and special features. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best handheld oscilloscope on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

December 06, 2018: There's a pretty direct relationship between cost and sample rate among these devices, though that doesn't always mean that the most expensive model is best. Both the Hantek and Siglent selections are prime examples of enough speed for most users, with a slew of great features and tested accuracy.
