I all you care to do is look at voltage levels and signal levels along 
the course of circuitry, this may be true. If you need to look at 
digital waveforms or making timing measurements, then you will probably 
want a scope that has a good triggered sweep. Best to have at lease two 
channels so that you can use one channel as a trigger input, and also be 
able to look at it to confirm exactly where in the waveform you are 
triggering the sweep. and the second channel to look at the time 
relation of other events in other parts of the circuitry.

I cannot recommend any scope that is not a Tektronix. (There are no "c"s 
or "s"s in Tektronix by the way)

I know there are probably new expensive scopes as good as old Tektronix 
scopes. There are not many old scopes as good as old Tektronix scopes.
