YEP! It is the fastest analog oscilloscope ever made that is capable of reading up to 1 GHZ.
It originally retailed for $31,000.00 US in 1978.
It is perfect for working on VHS/VCR, Laser Disc, DVD, and even Blue Ray burners since the primary use of an oscilloscope is to test diodes and capacitors in addition to circuits.
I've used them (not this model) in the past for all kinds of modifications and repairs of high-end computer boards (like the D925CVX, Intel motherboards that were among the fastest Pentium 4 boards made).

As I said, I wanted it for my side business because it is a fully operation, and calibrated 7104 and that model (like all of the 7000 series) had a bunch of plug-in modules for a wide variety of uses. Ebay is filled with tested, working, and calibrated modules available for the 7104.

Needless to say, as a Machine and Electronic Geek, it is a sort of like people who prefer analog cameras for better control of their picture development. Digital is nice, but analog has its strong points as well even if it is considered "obsolete."

We had these in my college electrical engineering lab and I used them when I was working support in a neuroscience lab. They are *fabulous*. I hate the new scopes - too few buttons with too many overloaded functions. This puppy you can take a picture of and have a record of the settings.

Dare I ask how much it set you back?

U-Umm, I didn't understand most of that you said up there... I've saw something like that in my oniichan's school.

I used them in the USAF to repair boards on the computational computers for the bomb simulators of the old B86 and B83 atomic bombs. I LOVED the 7104.
So far it's set me back only $600.00, but that's because I still have to buy the 1 GHz probe (another $275.00) and then there are all the plug-ins available (amazingly quite a few in excellent shape).

It is a great scope for computer work.

Got it here. Cost total $30 with shipping.
And as nice as that looks, it's A LOT better looking in person, my camera couldn't do it enough justice.

Taking advantage of some Easter sales, got God of War: Ascension, and this bad boy:



Just installed it into my laptop, and I'm already seeing speed improvements. Though... since I'm doing a fresh install, I have to set everything up again.

^ I bought me a 256 GB SanDisk SSD for $179.99 and i thought that was pretty expensive.
512 is overkill. and can any1 here even afford this CRAZY 1 TB SSD? it's only $2579.86 for holy moly sake!

Got it with half price, although I dislike its prequel.

Also just got an actual laptop for myself (previously using my sister's), a red Lenovo Ideapad Z480.

I got the 256GB, since I have 3 HDDs for storing things it's not too big a deal. I just put my OS and most used programs on the SSD and install the rest on the old 7200rpm. I'll probably free up a ton of space on it once I move/remove unused programs since I just opted to clone the old drive in the first place.

I highly recommend looking around on amazon. There's way more BRS themed scrolls than I could count. I can't imagine how many other anime ones there are.

Just bought a brand new TV with a pretty nice discount to serve as my second monitor. 21" FULL HD LED backlight and IPS. Sounds good enough for 170€
