The answer is always - that depends on what you need / want to do with it.

For timing, something with two channels usually is more useful. If all you
ever worry about is frequency, one channel is fine. 

The auction sites seem to list them for $100 to $200. They are a nice
compact unit for that price. A (larger) 5335 / 5345 / 5334 counter should be
/ might be found at the same price level. If dual channel is indeed a useful
feature, you might look for one of them.

I've seen one of these advertised, and wanted to know if any fellow Nuts had
any experience.
