I've got both a Ranco ETC-111000 and a Johnson A419, either are just fine. You can buy them wired or unwired, and buying them wired will cost more. If you can do basic wiring, it's easy.

Yeah that's the Johnston one. I think I paid 50-60 buck at my LHBS. Works fine in mine.

johnson digital A419...you can buy them on ebay for a little cheaper55-65 bucks, but with shipping, it comes close to value for a new one at midwest supplies. Without a warranty, I'd rather spend the extra few bucks for a new one, with warranty from midwest. i plan on keeping it for years...
