They have their place. The most important thing to remember is that,
from a practical viewpoint, a digital [ie, sampling] scope has to
sample 5 to 10 times per period on a signal to produce a high
fidelity "time-domain" display -[although some scopes do a sinX/X
reproduction and can get away with fewer samples].

In short, this means if you want a digital scope that has the same
ability to display data as a 100 Mhz analog scope, for example, it
has to be able to sample at upwards to 500-1000 Msamples/sec. You
can get 100 Mhz analog scopes for under $1000, but the digital scope
will cost a tad bit more.
