Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought a 'B' grade of this function generator and am very impressed with it. The handbook is detailed and even gives set up diagrams for various tests. The unit itself is neat and the controls self explanatory. One of the best items of test equipment I have ever owned.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Functions well. I purchased this item at the same time as digital oscilloscope. It works well and is straight forward in its operation. Well worth the money.
