Default Re: Best 100MHz analogue oscilloscope?

Hello Martin,

Tek 585A: #1249 is greeting #15, please see attached photo.

Honestly speaking, I would not recommend a 585A for everyday use now. I still admire the very bright and clearly displayed picture but there are so many rare, sensible and expensive components that can and will become defective sooner or later. I'd rather prefer to keep it on the shelf for occasional use only.
As Stan Griffiths has mentioned: "The man who has a Tek "5s" scope in use will inevitably own a second one to be able to service the main scope"!

So, for everyday use, I'd rather opt for the suggested HP 1740 or any similar one, said it has got a good pedigree.
