I've been using the same Pact since the early 1980's (I still have the original skyscreens, which may be a world's record the way that other people talk about shooting theirs)If I replace it, it will probably be with a CED

I used Pact Professional Chronograph. I already replaced two of the screen guide. One when the wind knocked it over and another when a shooting buddy ripped one apart with his 7MM STW. Last week though the nine volt battery terminal broke. Other than that, it works just fine.

I have a Prochrono Digital that has failed twice. The first time it went dead and was repaired under warrantee. The last time it just stopped updating the velocity. I stopped using it and haven't tried to debug the problem. Now I'm using a CED Mellinium, which I like a lot. Long cord, big display. I've set it up at 100 yds to measure downrange velocity and I can read the display just fine with a binocular. No failures yet. For both chronos, I found that they stop working once the sun sets and the sky screen is not longer directly illuminated. Also, they are more reliable if I shoot close to the optical sensors, as opposed to near the sky screens.

Oehler 33 Works very well for me and has for years.
