Power meter recommendations.

I'm looking for my first power meter and I'd like some feedback from those who have used them or those who have done some good research. Something reasonably priced is preffered. But a reliable one is more important. Thanks.

There aren't that many choices. Powertap or SRM. Don't bother with the polar system. What exactly do you mean by reasonably priced? You're looking at least at around $1k+

I think I once saw an ad from either serfas or saris. My first reaction was "I'd rather have a new bike".
