Electronic Barometers/Barographs?

Well, I need to get a Barograph (logging barometer) and I'm looking at a few different electronic versions. The one I'd like to get is over $1,000 with accessories, but I'll post it here for grins. Any thoughts on the others? I'm leaning towards the NASA Marine unit right now.

NASA Marine Unit (I'd get it without the wind speed stuff)

I have a Speedtech unit I bought second-hand for $35. It's no longer made, and eats just 4 AAA batteries per year. It is ideal for me, and logs 24 hours of readings.

You may wish to simply just get a good aneroid barometer and a wrist-top watch that records baro info like those from Suunto (I glance at mine a few times a day in changeable weather). Conversely, get a weather station with output to a PC and record and display historigraphs that way.

Other than that, the W&P unit is most similar to my old Speedtech. Look at the Oregon Instruments site; they may have something appropriate, too.
