On another thread you mentioned that you have a Rigol and you said "for the most part I really like it".
I happen to be looking to buy a Rigol, specifically the DS1052E. I've got a search active on Ebay to let me know of listings for it.
I wonder if you might expand upon your comment and describe its shortcomings, apart from the obvious of only having 2 channels and a 50 KHz bandwidth (which, for my modest lab ambitions, are unlikely to be an issue).
Erratum: Yes, I meant 50 MHz, not KHz.
