I have been offered a tektronix 3034 Scope for around $1300
Not the B model , but it has RS-232 & GPIB

But its a private sell on a newsgroup and the scope is in another country , and i have only seen pics of it.

The pics shows that its vers 1.0 firmware thats in it (Tex site has V3.35), and pics shows a US Powercord.

I am having doubts about this guy , but would alzo love to get my hands on a 3034.

I have suggested escrow.com as the "Middleman" , but dunno.

The 3034 gives me the kicks , but i have a bad taste alzo.

Suggestions ??

No comment on the 'scope, but if it has a US power lead will it work on European mains voltage levels?

Im not 100% but i would suppose that TEK would make a universal PSU so they could sell same model in all countries.
