mtcarey, thank you but I've looked at HK and other sites, now I'd like to hear what actual users have to say.

I'm using and like the Wattsup. It handles any current load I've needed up to now, and if I ever need to measure higher load products, I'll just add a shunt.
There are quite a few options for watt meters, including home-made, but the Wattsup is a trouble free and elegant solution for most situations.

I have a budget priced watt meter that has served me well over the last 2 years or so. It does not have all of the bells and whistles yet it lets me see if I am using the best prop for what I have.

The Medusa Power Analyzer was one of the best. Unfortunately they are no longer producing them. Keep an eye out for one on e-Bay and you might get lucky.
