Nice!  Those Rigols are pretty sweet from what I’ve read about them.  

I picked up a mid to late 90s 500MHz Tek with the FFT/Math package for a song about a year ago. It had the CRT and color shutter replaced by an aftermarket LCD package already. I paid less for the whole scope than what the LCD kit costs. And it had already been recapped!

I thought about the 200mhz model, but I don't really do anything that approaches 100mhz that I need to 'scope.  I have to say, compared to my previous dual-trace ATTEN 'scope, this one has rampant feature runaway!

20 years ago you would have paid twice as much for just the scope, about that for a good waveform generator, and twice that for the logic analyzer.

It looks like an all-around good deal.

Yep, I've wanted a 4-channel scope for years, but the availability of the logic analyzer and function generator included finally pushed me over the edge.  I suspect I'll have difficulty using all the features.  One of the neat things I spotted for this one was serial data decoding, that will come in very useful for some projects I'm doing.
