My MIL was in the market for one last Christmas and bought several that she hated. I did some research and got her this one, Omron Elite 7300W Womens Avanced Blood Pressure Monitor, which she really likes. It comes with 2 cuff sizes instead of the comfort fit one-size-fits-all, which apparently didn't fit her well. :) It is rated number 1 on consumer reports and you can get it for around $60 on Amazon. I think it is what I'm going to get to replace mine, since it seems to being going kaput too.
