I've heard lots of good things said about this oscilloscope (given the cheap 
price point):

Rigol DS1054Z 50MHz Digital Oscilloscope (rigol-uk.co.uk)

Dave from EEVblog reviews it in some depth below:

It's more than 6 years old now though, so you might get even more for your 
money with a more recent model.

Hi folks,

I suspect this is a group that includes folks who keep up with things like, 
what low-end scopes have custom firmware in circulation that unlocks 
advanced features, or what chinese off-brand DSO gives you the performance 
of X at a cost of <<X, etc...

I'm more looking for cheap and cheerful than highest-end, but Very Nice 
scopes for merely Nice prices are relevant too.

Do you have a favorite budget scope, or one you'd recommend for equipping a 
low end lab / repair bench?  Thanks!
