HP 33120A Function / Arbitrary Waveform Generator Review

While this is a discontinued unit, it can still bring a lot of value to a lab and it can be had for only a couple of hundred dollars, used. On top of that, its performance is still better than some similarly priced generators, that you can buy new from other manufacturers.
On the other side, it only has one channel and only goes up to 15 MHz, which might not be enough for everyone, so if you decide to go for it, you’ll probably do it taking other factors into account, like the THD (which is excellent), if you’re doing audio work.

Agilent/Keysight 33622A Waveform Generator Review

The 33600 family is the successor to the 33500 line of waveform generators, based on the Trueform technology, bringing more bandwidth, higher sample rate, more memory and better jitter specs.

The unit under review is the 33622A model and I've been using it for several months already. During the time I had it, I found only a few minor issues, that we will discuss later in the review, but other than that, it's been a pleasure to use from all points of view and I'd have no reservations if I were to recommend it to a friend.

The price is a bit on the high side, but given the performance, the build quality it offers and all the good things that come with such a brand, it's fairly reasonable.
