I have been in the electronics business professionally since 1986 and I have used all sorts of scopes, both in labs and many obscure places where I needed them for troubleshooting. As I always needed a laptop as well Picoscopes have always been very practical. For I2C etc... the software that comes with them resolves all of the I2C traffic perfectly. So yes: highly recommended.
That's the second recommend for the Siglent 1104x-E
I'm definitely putting that on my top consideration now. I like the front panel interface, but I wonder if those dials are also controllable in software? Unfortunately the wall mount for TV won't put this form factor of TV higher than it is, so it's flush with my desk at the bottom. That means I don't want to put the scope on my desk necessarily. I'd rather keep it beside my bench, and run the thing through software, though having the knobs is a win.
And here's a third. I got one of them and and 10 or 20Mhz 8 channel fleabay logic annalyser last year.
Yep - the dials are all software controllable. It's programmable as a mofo, and will be used to perform automated pass/fail tests for me in the future via telnet (or maybe wifi).
If money is no object, I love my Tektronix DPO4000B with an I2C module. It decodes all kind of serial buses (I2C, SPI, etc.). I think they have now been replaced by a new series (MDO ?) but I’m not planning to upgrade. Bought it about 10 years back but the build quality is superb. Cannot say much about Tektronix tech support because I’ve never called them. Their tools just work.
And oh, this is not a silly scope, it’s a serious, buttoned down, workhorse
I had one of those momentary thoughts of horror - nightmarish; like someone stepped on your grave, but more like they take their dog for its "exercise" their on a daily basis. In so many ways, it's impossible for anyone to stomach it, but, here it is:
Please, with the upcoming bunny & eggs festival, do not subject Bob to this. Do not dress him up as a "Peep"[^].
Can you tell when a train has been past because it left tracks behind?

Does anyone know of a POE hat for the Pi-4 that provides 3 amps instead of just 2.5?

The 802.3af standard only guarantees 12.95w of power available for any devices which is less than 3A at 5V.
I suspect there is a reason POE hats supply 2.5A.
I wouldn't trust one that claims to supply more, unless you find one that supports 802.3at (POE+), in which case your switch also must support that.
