I like the Chrony I've had for years. Mainly because it was cheap and is very compact when folded up for transporting to the range. I think the skyscreens are the weak point, as sakomato mentioned. They are a three-handed circus to set up. I get consistent results with mine and very few "error
" readings once they are set up, though. It is important to open the box unit all the way to the stops when setting up, and a fresh battery helps, too.
I like using it on overcast days, don't even bother with the skyscreens.
I'm sure most others are better, but mine was a great small investment years ago, and has served me far better than I would have expected. Electronic devices tend to die on me like butterflies in he hands of a four year old. This one has held up well.
I never shot it though....
