Compare the RIGOL 5000 Series with the competition

With class leading performance specifications, feature rich advanced analysis features, next generation UI, and up to a 50% price advantage the MSO5000 brings uncompromised flexibility & capability to every engineer’s bench.

We encourage you to compare the 5000 Series with the competitive Tektronix and Keysight and R&S solutions. 


Uncompromised Performance...

          Unprecedented Value


Data Sources:  Tektronix MSO/DPO2000B Datasheet (43GW-28413-8) dated 21 Mar 2018, Tektronix TBS2000 Datasheet (3GW-60253-3) dated 5 Sept 2017,  Keysight 2000 X Series Data Sheet (5990-6679EN) dated February 4, 2018, and Rohde and Scwartz RTB2000 Datasheet (PD3607.4270.22) dated January 2019

Compare the MSO5000 to the Tektronix MSO2000B


See the benefits of 8GSa/sec sampling and long record length in comparison to the MSO2000B.  Avoid undersampling and signal distortion.

Long Memory Capture

With up to 200 times the memory of the MSO2000B, the RIGOL 5000 gives you the best zoom, search, and measurement capabilities in its class.

FFT Comparison

The RIGOL 5000 Series delivers high resolution FFTs (up to 1 Mpts) with Spectrum Analyzer like controls including span, peak search, and color density.

Waveform Capture Rate

Compare waveform capture rate performance of the MSO5000 and the MSO2000B.  Significant performance advantages are delivered by the UltraVision II architecture.

Storage Speed

Moving Data off of the instrument for off-line analysis quickly and easily is important.  See how the RIGOL compares to the Tektronix.

Compare the MSO5000 to the Rohde and Schwartz RTB2000

High Resolution

Much is made about the RTB2000 10Bit A/D.  But see how the RIGOL MSO5000's custom analog front-end ASIC provides significantly better dynamic range, eliminating saturation and provides better resolution of small signals 

Storage Speed

Longer record lengths can make accessing data over USB a time consuming problem.  See how the performance hardware architecture of the MSO5000 provides 11X faster access of a 10M record than the RTB2000.

Memory Depth and Sample Rate

The MSO5000 provides 8GSa/sec sampling and up to 200M record length.  See how this combination allows users to get significantly more signal resolution on longer captures than with the RTB2000

Waveform Capture Rate

Fast Waveform Capture Rate minimizes deadtime to insure short duration signal artifacts are captured and displayed.  With up 500,000 wfms/sec see how RIGOL provides ~10X the performance of the RTB2000.

FFT Capability

The RIGOL MSO5000 allows users to display up to 4 concurrent high resolution (1MPoint) FFTs.  Add enhanced Spectrum Analysis controls and a color FFT display capability for uncompromised frequency analysis

Record Mode/Segmented Memory

The MSO5000 allows users to capture up to 450,000 frames for playback and analysis.  This capability allows the user to isolate only signals of interest and view them over time.  See how the MSO50000 compares with the RTB2000
