I am a very happy owner of the 212/3 model and have considered it a good investment both on a personal gain level and a finacial gian level.
When i first heard of the Picoscope 4 channel I looked forward to it's arrival while thinking of the benifits it would bring for me professionally.
I read in your recent newsletter that you are offering an upgrade kit at a less price than a full kit. For existing owners of a Pico unit this is obviously good news. But if i read your article right (applogies if i haven't), your upgrade kit would mean we now own TWO Pico units - rendering the first purchase obselete because the new better equiped model would naturally take all the diagnostic work. And if the first purchase isnt making money, then it's loosing money and value whilst being redundant. I'm sure i'm not alone in recognising this.
Are you making any provision for an "exchange" scheme prehaps? Old for new.
A purchase for a product like this for us independant Techs has to be viewed as an investment. Our customers might think we live in castles high on hills, but the reality is very different.
Making another purchase isnt the problem, it the thought of owning two Pico units and only ever using one. I really cant think of a single instance where the 212/3 model would ever be in preference over the 3423. I'm not in a position to throw money away so i cant leave it shelved.
As i said at the start, I am a very happy owner of the 212/3 model and praise it when given the oppertunity.
