Will it ever end? How many bugs are there still to be discovered…
A word of warning: there will be some strong language in the post. If anybody affiliated with Lecroy should read this, please feel offended – not as a person, but as part of that company. It is well deserved!
What I’m doing – or trying to do:
1) Set the timebase to 25.0µs and capture a signal in single-shot mode. TRY to zoom in by turning the timebase-knob 1-step clockwise
Result: it immediately jumps to 1µs and gives me shit.
2) Do the same thing with an initial timebase of 1.0µs, capture + zoom in
Result: it works !
W-T-F ! ? !
Every time I use this heap of … and stumble upon ANOTHER issue on my list, I think about the money I spent for this thing. It’s just sad stuff like this is released with such a bug-ridden firmware.
I thought Lecroy was a good brand, but apparently that is NOT the case in the low-end sector. Personally I expect the same thorough testing in low-end scopes as in their high-end multi-100k$ devices. SHAME ON YOU!
Could I have my money back please?
