Dunno much about these, but we have a half a dozen 7600 scopes that were
purchased way back, they keep outlasting the new scopes we buy.
Case in point, we have one of those new digital phosphor Tek scopes, we have
had to send it back to them twice now. It seems to be a problem in the CCFL
circuit, as a nice bright light shows it is still working.
Personally I got a Tek 7704 from ebay for 100 bucks plus 50 shipping, seems
to work wonderfully. It has a cal sticker on it from NASA, and was
cal'd on 30 Jun 2000.
