I want to pick one up and don't really know what I should be looking for. So many models and specs - it's mind bending.

I have a line on a working GW Instek GOS-6112 2 channel for $125, probes included.

Or, I can get a refurbished Tektronix Tek 465B for $120 shipped (with probes).

Is either of these a good choice?

All I will be doing with it is VCR alignment, at least in the foreseeable future.

these are both 100MHZ scopes bandwidth

either should work for triggering off the headswitching pulse on one channel and tweaking while observing the RF from the heads on the other.

Which one to chose is a philosophical question quality us made (0ld) or newish GW Instek.

both have advantages I like that the tectronics turns on and works immediately, the instek has to boot up and operates on software so it has a different feel.

Thanks very much, bever!

Just ordered the Instek. Has probes and the manual included. We'll see if I survive this
