Talking of 82357B USB-GPIB adapter - does anyone have any experience of the Chinese clones, for example: <http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/180734845086>

Yes, I recommend switching to a networked GPIB interface. I have long waited to acquire a used E5810A and at last I succeeded. Of course it was not so cheap (380$) but very versatile to use. At work I use an Agilent 82357B, highly recommended. Frequently pops up on eBay, not cheap but you can find the IOAgilentSuite (free) library (to write in MicrosoftC/BorlandC your code) directly on the Agilent website.
