'[EE]: Any comments on Tek 1000 / 2000 series oscil'

I'm considering buying a bottom end Tektronix oscilloscope.
Probably a 2102 (60 MHz (1 GS/s), 2 channel, colour).
(The entry level to this range is 2 channel, 60 MHz mono and top end is 200
MHz 4 channel colour)
(These supersede the old 100 / 200 series models)

Has anyone had any experiences, good or bad, with these that they would like
to rave about?

I'm annoyed that they have succumbed to marketing driven greed and want to
charge about 25% extra over the price of the entry level model for the add
on RS232 / GPIB / Centronix printer port module when I (and probably most
users) would be entirely happy with a simple serial port which is well
within the capability of the basic design. (A smarter move would be to
include a simple serial port in ALL models in the range and charge a bit
more overall).

I have both the TDS2024 and TDS3034. I like both, but do prefer the 3000
series. The screen is nicer then the 2000 series.

Having said that the 2000 series is nice as far as it goes. Although it is a
digital storage scope, there are limitations in how far off the screen you
can set the trigger point. I found the screen resolution was lacking under
some circumstances, which caused me to swap to the 3000 as soon as I could.
However at less than half the price of the 3034, the 2024 would have to be
considered good value for what you get.

I would strongly recommend getting one on demonstration before firmly
committing yourself. Give it a good workout over the weekend, and see how
you like it.
