[sdiy] Best scopes for the money, 2020?

Good and eternal question. Both vintage Tek and modern scopes are always
"best" in different ways, but it's useful to hear people's recommendations.
A colleague of mine found the Siglent SDS1104X-E 100MHz four-channel
oscilloscope interesting (in the 500ish price range), and it would be nice
to hear if people say yay or nay before we order a couple of them - and
before this is seen as some kind of recommendation.

Personally I've almost never needed more than my analog Tektronix 2236 and
2247A (both with built-in multimeters) give me (in addition to a really
high quality audio interface and computer) and it's a joy using them. But
I'm sure you know that already. :-)
