I've used several hand held brands / models:

Little Yellow RadarChron
+ Compact
+/- Manual reset between each shot
- Two-digit display
X-Radar Paintball Chrono
- no confirmation of detection (in other words, how do you know if you got the exact same speed, or it's still showing the previous shot)?
Virtue Clock
+ Audio confirmation of shot detection (a must if you think you're marker is +/-1 FPS)
+ BPS and FPS Calculations (average and standard deviation)
+ Tripod Compatible
+ Easiest display to read
- BPS/FPS Calculations only work on ROFs above 1BPS
I'm not sure how other's handle this but, I'd advise against comparing radar based chrono accuracy unless using an optical chrono as a central point of reference. Also be sure to be aware of where you're pointing the chrono's beam (as CJOttowa mentions here).
