The last time we covered the Seeed DSO Nano oscilloscope, they hadn’t produced any specification or hardware yet. Now, one month later, they have already shipped a limited number of beta units out for testing. Blair of Justblair got one of these units, and shared his review with us.

So, should you buy one? I think that depends on what you are looking for. If you need a quick way to debug microcontroller circuits, this could be a great way to go. It’s limited to a single channel at 1MHz, so it won’t help with your most advanced analog electronics projects, however it’s also priced low enough ($89) that you can probably upgrade later if you need to. It’s also probably the first scope ever to qualify as a stocking stuffer. So there you have it!

    Hey, your oscilloscope looks cool. But a single channel at 1MHz specification is too limited. Also $89 for that machine is not cheap. We have DSO with 2 channels+1 ext trig, 25MHz at US$250. Do you need it?
