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)

Weems & Plath


P-Raeber Really expensive but very cool

I have an earlier version of the Weems & Plath unit. It has served well enough. Only real complaint has been that it has a non-adjustable threshold for high-wind warning, which leads to false alarms in the tropics (because there's a twice-daily 3mb change in baro pressure). Other than that, ok.
