Great value!! Time Owned: 6 to 12 months.
The Tektronix 453 Oscilloscopes 50MHz bandwidth oscilloscopes offer a great value for anyone needing an oscilloscope for general hobbyist use. They are inexpensive, plentiful and lot's of information is available on the web. I have six of them now. Two working units, several probes and four parts units. Got the whole package for $100.00 plus a 2 1/2 hour round trip to pick them up. These oscilloscopes are built like tanks. They definitely don't build them like they used to!!

Research the information on the web to learn more about these scopes. I suggest you ask around where you live instead of buying off ebay so you can avoid the shipping charges.

Tektronix does not support these scopes any longer. With all the information on the web coupled with the excellent Service Manuals repair is not a problem.
