My Nashbar has worked well for about a year and a half .... a couple of months after I got it I had to teflon tape the pressure gauge fitting and re-tighten it. Otherwise it has performed without a hiccup.

What I like least about it is that, in use, it doesn't afford much of a grip for the non-pumping hand. The others I've seen seem to all share this defect.

I picked up the Topeak DXG. Not too expensive. Jenson's has it for just under $50 USD right now (€25.13 on Bike-Discount.de). It's done the job for me thus far and I have absolutely no complaints.

I think my Rock Shox pump was around 35 bucks on Amazon.
