I have a friend who has the analog version and he has had some reliability issues... Now, that's only one case so does it really mean anything? Probably not. However, having used his a couple of times I find the digital version a bit simpler to operate and it is more compact. I've yet to change the batteries in mine in 4 years. I can't recommend it enough. Good luck with whatever you end up with. Shawn

Like you, I'm broke most of the time, so I need to get the best equipment as cheaply as possible
