However, I personally have only used legacy HP scopes, and thus I have no idea what modern features are must haves and which brand's user interface is the most intuitive. Is there anyone out there that has used modern Tektronix/Agilent/LeCroy scopes side by side and can comment on their thoughts from the purely subjective side?"

I've heard this repeated over and over again in throughout numerous industries, over the course of my 20 or so odd years involved with technology.
I think this age old saying is about to go the way of the dinosaurs.
