Windex vs. anemometer opinions...

Hey All,
All the electronic instruments on my boat are original and the sending units beyond help. A new depth gauge is cheap and speed can be covered by the chartplotter/gps program.
The issue is that the prices of anemometer sending units are just plain crazy

Keeping in mind that this year will be daysailing in the bay and getting familiar with this boat here is my question:
Is it worth the $$$ or do most just use the windex anyhow? I have sailed with an anemometer and found myself just looking up at the windex while trimming.

What say you??
