Thanks for all the info! The 2465B looks great and I can see myself getting one in a year or two. But for right now I think the 2213A is the way to go, financially speaking.

I noticed though that the other 2213As on ebay have different and more buttons the the one Alex mentioned. Is that a 2213A pictured or a 2213? It is hard to see but I don't think there is an A on the model number pictured. I have attached a picture highlighting the differences in buttons.

One on the right is correct 2213A, on the left it is a different model - well done for spotting that, as it is certainly not 2213A and the seller from the link I've posted misrepresents the item.

On the other hand 2213A from your link looks good and price is OK.

Cheers

Alex

P.S. - the other scope looks a bit like 2213 without "A" , it is an older type and the tube is not the same.

Are there any other differences between the 2213 and the 2213A besides the display?

I found specs for the 2213 and 2213A at the the links below and the displays appear to be the same. Are the displays different and just have the same general specs?

Hi Matt,

from what I can remember the specs are the same, but the tube is different (as well as the circuit) and 2213A has a different arrangement for focusing. In general 2213A is later and better model.

Cheers

Alex

What about the 2215A? There seems to be more of them available at lower prices than the 2213A on ebay.

I have to admit the more I think about the 2465B the more I just want to wait. But maybe if I could get a 2213A or 2215A for dirt cheap, less than $150, that would take care of my needs till I could afford a 2465B.

Thanks,
Matt

the only difference between 2213A and 2215A, I think, is that the latter is equipped with a dual time base (i.e. you can "zoom" on a portion of the signal by displaying it on a different time scale). It is a useful feature however there is no point in getting anything in a poor condition. Old scopes more often than not have problems with CRT, blurred traces etc. Unless there is a very good picture of a screen with a signal from the actual unit I would be wary of buying a scope very cheaply from an unknown source without some warranties or at least a money back option.

Cheers

Alex

I bought a 2236A last year for less than $200, calibrated, from a guy who runs a used test equipment business in San Diego. Maybe that'll suffice for your need.

Cheers

Thanks for everyone's help!

I ended up buying a 2235 off ebay shipped for $252.50. The scope appears to be functional and clean.

Thanks again,

I have owned many Tek scopes and the 465 is a good solid reliable scope. I do not like the 2230 series.

I currently own, and have owned several in the past the Sencore SC61 service scope. this is a nice dual channel 100mhz scope with some nice features. There is a digital meter built in and that allows you to not only see the waveform but measure either Volts P-P, DC Volts, or frequency. plus it has a delta time function that is really handy for measuring the width of a wave or part of a wave or marking a specific time event. very handy.

The biggest drag of the sencors is that you have to use there probes for the Digimeter function to work and the dang probes can cost as much if not more then the scope!

These can be had cheap, under $200 generally and for a student that make a great starter scope! very easy to use. yet pack a lot of features. I would be hard pressed to give up the SC61 these days. maybe and i mean only maybe for something like a Tek DSO with VGA output or something.

Zero Cool,

Any reason(s) why you don't like the 2230 series?
