What is your opinion of Rohde & Schwarz? - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues - primarily having to spend time purging garbage posts from the board. At some point I might start the RF Cafe Forums again if the phpBB software gets better at filtering spam.

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

Rohde and Schwarz service in my opinion is very poor.

We have returned to them a SMIQ generator two times.

The problem we had have been commented to be a battery charger design issue that was making the unit loose it's factory calibration, by the support people.

Once the unit returned after chargin us 3000$ they returned the unit "un-repaired" with no comments. Only thing that have been done is a recalibration, and they did not fix the trouble reported. This took six months.

After a second return, now out of the waranty period, they just suggested to buy a brand new unit.

I was and I am still not impressed.

R&S is a very difficult company to deal with in terms of Sales and Service [including their Calibration service]. Their sales and management force are arrogant and misleading and this has been my experiance in the North East and West coast. My personal message is "Anybody but R&S"

I agree that customer service sucks at R&S, but their equipment beats the pants off of Agilent. Agilent, on the other hand, has great customer service.

    Kirt Blattenberger,

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
