"Scottrade is very bare bones, and there's no 800 number to call if you need help. "

That alone would be enough to steer me in another direction. I've been investing for over 30 years and still find there are questions I need to discuss with a real live human being 2 or 3 times a year. I have both regular and IRA brokerage accounts with Fidelity and an IRA mutual fund account with Vanguard. Experience with both has been excellent.
