Leakdown tester

I am finally getting ready to drop my engine and replace head studs/top end job. I have not done a leakdown test on it and want to. Question is that the super nice Snap-on tester retails for $299. I see inexpensive testers on eBay for $75. Now I usually prefer really good tools but has anybody used these less expensive leakdown setups? In this case I and a buddy might use the tool twice a year, not several times a week like a real shop. Is there an issue with accuracy of the inexpensive testers ? Or of course any local Pelicanites that want to let me borrow one....
