I would choose between analogue reading and digital reading first: digital allows a more immediate reading but only displays one couple, or the EV, with a decently big number, while analogue reading gives simultaneously several exposure couples, that's why some find it more practical, but might be more sensitive to shocks and harder to read for those with visual "challenges".

After you made that choice, any light meter with an SBC (silicon blue cell) and a currently available battery should fit your needs and you can certainly find a cheap occasion on some second-hand market. Anything marked Minolta, Gossen or Sekonic is of good quality. Minolta sold their lightmeter division to Kenko so a Kenko lightmeter after the Minolta acquisition is also very good.
