Range finder suggestions?

I'm looking for moderate-priced (around $200) range finder, something that isn't hard to use.

I've been quite pleased with my Bushnell 800. I've checked it out on known distances, and it correlates within one yard at 440. Picks up well on highly reflective objects at over 800. 3X magnification.

^ +1 I have a Bushnell 1000 and my Prairie Dog shooting buddy has the 800 version. They have always cross referenced to the yard "With Precision".

Bushnell 800 here, too. I only use it for ranging bow-hunting distances when I set up treestands, but it's a good tool to have.

Nikon riflehunter 550 here. No issues at all. I have cross referenced as well and its right on. We can't use rifles here so my distances are about 150 and under. It also has the angle compensation for elevated ranging. I think I paid around 250.
