One of the biggest advantages my 3405B offers me is the large waveform buffers. In one application I am looking at startup waveforms and need the high sample rate and large buffer to capture the full transition to stable operation. My laptop is no dog and with an 8 meg 4 ch capture I am having to wait seconds for updates when panning around the waveform. My question is what happens with 50, 100, 500 meg waveforms. Does the delay scale with buffer size?
My next purchase would be a scope with 10x buffer size but I want to understand how well the picoscope software does with 10x change in buffer size.
