If those are really clones maybe they are useful. I'm planning to buy
a real 82357B in the future and actually I'm following every interface
that the eBay saved search flags. One day or the other maybe my turn.
Eight months I waited to acquire an E5810A for 380$ instead of 750$. I
love the "command line" way and actually I can write various data
acquisition routines virtually on-the-fly (kinda live-coding) to get
data from (for example) the Fluke PM6681, from the M12M by the serial
port, and have the time interval corrected by the negative sawtooth. I
used a LeCroy 9362 and a 53132A too to gather time differences in the
past. It is very easy with the old Borland C 5 and the static linking
library provided free by Agilent to write down simple code to acquire
from varius sources (GPIB, serial port and others).
