Missed the Boat

Post by postman23 »

I'm really sorry to say this as I have been a Pico scope user for many years, but Pico scope 7 pales in comparison to Pico scope 6 in my opinion. Had you simply made Pico 6 touch screen usable, added the 30 degree increments in to the stroke rulers and a stroke overlay, you would have made substantial improvements to an already awesome program. However, I think that re-designing the entire thing was a mistake, and the latest software update just doesn't work. It keeps freezing my screen if I change the time base and I have to reboot it. If this is the future of Pico, I may have a 4425 for sale to offset my purchase of an E-scope.

Couldn't disagree more.
I've had a 2203 for 10 years and I like the V7 interface - cleaner and more intuitive.

I'm not a huge fan of the new interface but you are aware that PS7 is a beta of course?
I may play with 7 but for a production environment I still use 6.

Also, feature parity between Mac and PC was a must.

Hi
My experience is that when I first showed version 6 to people who work with real oscilloscopes all day long they thought it was not so easy to follow. When I showed them version 7 they felt more "at home".
