What are you looking to use it for? How much space do you have?  What is
your budget?

Used Tek scopes can be awesome and punch well above their used prices, but
also check out the modern entry-level scopes. Very nice features and
performance at ~$300 -$500 USD, budget permitting.


Haven't read up on the new GW Instek model, but Siglent seems to edge out
the older Rigol models in fit and finish.


Interesting points and counterpoints in those links.
