Calling all oscilloscope experts

— 4:15 AM on June 30, 2003

I'm thinking about picking up an oscilloscope for the underground benchmarking sweatshop and am looking for some advice. I'll primarily be using the 'scope to measure ripple voltage for power supplies, but wouldn't mind if it were also suitable for testing video signal strength for graphics cards.

I'm not a stranger to using oscilloscopes, but I don't have much of an idea of what I should be looking for when shopping for one. Ideally, I'd like to spend as little as possible and maybe pick one up on eBay. If you have any suggestions on specific models or specifications that might meet my needs, please email me or post in the comments. Thanks.
