Was tempted to get one

I saw some of these, built and installed in a laser-cut plywood case, when I was at the Edinburgh Mini Maker Faire recently. I was tempted to buy one but didn't because I wasn't sure what I'd use it for! They were selling for around £30 I think.

Great subject for a show!

If it was a color screen it might be the same kit. There are a few other DSO kits out there with non-color screens.

I'm sure these things can be bought cheaply in bulk. Looks like someone might be making a bit off them selling them with a custom made plywood case.

Good on'em. The entrepreneurial spirit.

Pre-built kit

The company still have the item on their website, though it seems to be sold out. It seems to be the red PCB and a colour screen, so I guess it's genuine and might be the same model.
