I have recently used two floors pumps, one a Bontrager and the second a Zefal (cheap one from Walmart). Neither of those had accurate gauges and didn't last very long. I can't speak to durability since I just got this pump, but the gauge is only off about 2%. That's pretty darn good. Also, I like the gauge being up closer to the handle so you can see it easier. I LOVE the air release button on the side of the gauge. Talk about being able to get the pressure just where you want it. The price is right,too.
