Not sure what issues would exist with firmware updates cost, availability or with content updates again cost and if it is even supported still? Fortunately, I have a lot of other scope probes in the lab already, so I can make full use of the eight hnatek immediately! You will spend way more than that on the probes, leads, and accessories that are need to make the scope useful. A quirk of ahntek software is by default it installs in the Cantonese Chinese language, this can be fixed by simply deleting the Chinese language files after which it defaults to US English.
One of the problems with recommending a scope is that shipping, customs duties and local taxes can make a huge difference in cost between continents. Otherwise I am lost Hantek b or c The Hantek C is remarkably cheap it comes bundled with a few handy leads and a DIS ignition probe.
I googled to see if there was any Linux support for the Hantek B. Despite the fact that it cost me twice the price of a Uscope, it easily cost justified itself during this swap.

If your personal budget is such that a Vantage Pro is something you can consider, I say go for it! However, it became apparent that AES had no plans for a two channel version. The fact is, the hntek of the scope itself will never in my lifetime be obsolete.
Just a thought on a different path When I bought the scope I was offered a hantke deal on the battery and bag bundle and I suspect the seller was off-loading a suspect load of batteries.

Here is the initial display, with all eight channels active, displaying the 1kHz 2v p-p test signal supplied by the scope. The Hantek is the cheapest of the cheap and quality is very “iffy”, but if you stick to using only 1 or 2 channels the hardware is good enough for decent captures but like most Chineses scopes the software interface is awful but has the saving graces of pre-configured automotive tests which by-pass a lot of the chore of setting up using the interface and make it a lot easier for the beginner.
