Editor's Notes

December 09, 2018: This category has some pretty big swings in price, with additional output channels, higher bandwidth, and cleaner signals seeming to make the most difference in cost. Established brands like Siglent and Rigol keep their prices reasonably low despite scoring well in all these departments, where others like Fluke and TTi boast excellent features, but are probably more expensive than they need to be.
