Believe it or not, the cheap no-name computers from China have worked fine for me.

They ship directly from China, so delivery can take a few weeks. Browse that site. It's smaller than dealextreme, but there's something about the company that I like. I can't put my finger on it.

I actually use one even cheaper than that, mine cost $3 shipped.

Does that computer actually have Cadence? Usually when Chinese comps say "cadence" they mean that they've got an arrow that says whether you're going faster or slower than your average so far this trip, NOT cadence.

It doesn't have two sensors so I don't know how it could have cadence.

I don't know. I assumed they know what cadence is, but I could be wrong. I haven't used any computers with a cadence feature, as I don't crave it.

This is what the sites says about it:
Product Details

Multifunction bicycle-odometer also includes the function of thermometer, clock and stopwatch. Multifunction bicycle-odometer is an ideal accessory for cyclist

  • Easy to mount - no tools required

  • DST - Trip distance
  • MXS - Maximum speed
  • AVS - Average speed
  • TM - Elapsed time
  • CLK - Clock (12H/24H)
  • Cadence - Speed comparator
  • Scan - Screen display varies among DST, MXS, AVS, TM every 4 seconds

  • Sensor Cable Length (Approx.): 85cm
  • Size (LCD display): 3 x 2.5 cm

  • 1 x Mounting shoe
  • 1 x Wheel magnet
  • 1 x 3V battery CR20329(inside the computer)
  • 1 x user manual

I would think that with only one magnet, it would either go on the tire for speed or on the pedal for cadence.

I do not believe it has cadence but rather is only reporting deviation from average speed.
