OK, I'm going to give the minimalist/cheap-bastard perspective.  I've done
some solid troubleshooting with my HP 1630G. Sure, it only has a 1K event
memory, but the triggering options are pretty flexible.  With some
creativity, you can focus on the behavior you need to observe.  It can
self-clock or externally clock, with three separate clock inputs.  I've
used it to find some pretty obscure race conditions (one-shots are evil!)
and glitches.

Full disclosure: I do also have a really nice 16700-series I got from Glen
Slick, but for some things the easy setup of the 1630G wins.  -- Ian
