Actually the LCD monitor in the 16702A was dead when I got it, which
was probably why I got a good deal. Since the resolution of the LCD is
so low, it's much more usable with an external monitor anyhow. I just
wish that there was a setting for 1600x1200 at 60Hz, or that there was
a way to set up the "custom" display setting.

I have a 16701A that doesn't power up. I haven't yet tried to sort
that out. I haven't really ever need more than five acquisition cards.

Are those chips actually loaded? Maybe they used them for manufacturing test?

I did think that one of the things they screwed up on the 16700 series
was not supporting HP-IB and the command set of the 16500 series.

Don't even get me started on the 16900 series, though.
