I would buy the GW Instek, because it has knob for each channel. But yes, it's firmware is not much feature-rich.
Read user manuals of both scopes and find out, what you prefer.

Have a look over in the test equipment section of the forum.  There's many many threads discussing low end scopes going at the moment.  There's a lot more options than just these two in that price range.

BTW that price for the rigol is about %50 higher than what the current price in Oz is through a bricks and mortar store.  You shouldn't be paying much more than what's on the rigol website you linked to ($399USD)

If you've watched a few of his videos, you'd see he uses several manufactures scopes (I guess not to be biased.)
