I have a Pact Chrono/Timer older model and it has given me excellent service over many years.
I also recently purchased a ProChrono digital just for ease of use. Chose it over other compact models because it has a large shooting window and easy to read screen. It has been ultra reliable and speeds are comparable to those measured on the Pact. If you are careful and don't let anyone else use it, then it probably won't end up shot.
The club I belong to has a CED with IR screens for indoor use. Maybe they were unlucky but it is next to useless indoors, works OK outdoors but no better than any of the others above.
