4-Channel oscilloscope for the price of a 2-Channel
As a result of the review I made to the FNIRSI 1014D oscilloscope, I received several messages and emails to asking to do the review of an Owon or a hantek oscilloscope to compare to the FNIRSI 1014D. So, I decided to contact Owon and Hante, that by the time of writing this article had not yet answered). However, Owon was super helpfull and sent me this unit for testing.
Although it has been provided free of charge, my review and opinion are independent.
That said, this oscilloscope is in that category that has emerged in the last years of entry level bench oscilloscopes at affordable prices. In this range, I recently reviewed the FNIRSI 1014D, as I explained before and that it was an oscilloscope that despite having some limitations and even firmware errors, subsequently corrected with an upgrade, left me a very positive impression.
The FNIRSI 1014D was mainly pointed to the segment of hobbist and beginners in electronics and the Owon SDS1104 object of this article/video, I think we can also fit in this segment, however, Owon SDS1102 (2 channels) and the SDS1104 (4 channels) rose the bar.
Some of the faults/missing features in FNIRSI 1014D, like no mathematical functions for the waveform, the signal can not be inverted, the measurements are displayed in the same location of the readings and others, these limitations do not exist in this oscilloscope.
It is very complete for the price range, even having a connecting to the PC, very limited and slow in screen updates on the PC software, but allows you to use FFT or XY mode, make measurements, cursors and other functions directly in the PC.
Because it is so complete and with an attractive price, the 2-channel price is little higher than the FNIRSI 1014D and the 4-channel price is equivalent to a 2-channel Hantek DSO2C15, this oscilloscope was a positive surprise.
Its performance in some features such as FFT or XY mode is slow, when compared to higher range models, however, has all these functions are included and running minimally well.
