Re: [cosmacelf] Logic Analyzer recently discussed, please read.
- Josh,Thanks for doing the research. I was going to buy that $9 model after work (7:20PM and I'm still at work, sigh….) but I'm not going to support a knock off theft from Saleae. Their device looks awesome and well worth the money. I think short term I'll build one like Ted's and see if St. Nick will get me one of those Saleae ones for Christmas : )Cheers,Andrew

I recently endorsed a Logic Analyzer that I purchased through Alibaba from China. The software that came with it was from a company called Saleae. I wasn't aware that this device was using stolen software, but after reading the article at
I am convinced that I have one of these "Cheap Knock Off" units.
I regret endorsing such a product and retract that endorsement.
I urge you to NOT buy any cheap knock offs.
In an attempt to make things right, I have placed an order for a legitimate unit directly from their website.
They sell 2 units.
8 channel for $150
16 channel for $300
They offer a 33% discount for students (NICE).
Even at $150, this tool is worth it.
- I have one of these that has worked out well.
