Default PLX opinions and other stuff

No responses over on the 92x forum, figured I'd try here:

So I'm looking at all my options for gauges and I need some help deciding. Right now I have a Labonte flow gauge for my alky/water injection system (still in the box), it's 52mm. I've also got an A pillar pod that I can install whenever. I know I want an AFR gauge, obviously a boost gauge, EGT, oil pressure, and perhaps either a water, oil, or intake air temp gauge. The triple pod on the pillar plus a pod in the middle gives me space for 6 gauges, I don't really fell like putting any on the column, so I think I'm limited to 6. The Labonte is a black faced gauge with red led numbers, and I want consistency, so here's what I'm looking at.

Defi BF Link in white: http://www.nippon-seiki.co.jp/defishop/ f_top.html
Prosport premiums in amber/white for boost/EGT/oil pressure/temps: http://prosportgauges.com/premium_serie auges.aspx
AEM UEGO AFR: http://www.aempower.com/ViewCategory.aspx?CategoryID=67
Innovate DB or G3 AFR: http://www.innovatemotorsports.com/products/db.php , http://www.innovatemotorsports.com/prod _gauge.php
Labonte flow gauge for comparison: http://www.labontemotorsports.com/store FG-10.html

My other thought:
PLX DM-100 Digital gauge: http://www.plxdevices.com/products/dm100/

If I do the PLX, I'll run AFR, EGT, WT, OT, OP, and maybe IAT through it (maybe not all at once, I might build it up after I find a place to put all the little red boxes) as well as a dedicated boost gauge and the Labonte gauge. If I run the prosports I'll probably do the AEM and Labonte as well as the original 3 and a water temp. The Innovate is just if I change my mind about the UEGO.

Price breakdown:
PLX: 370 for the AFR and gauge setup plus around 100 for each extra module and another 200 for the boost gauge and pod, total around 900 (a lot, but very customizable).
Prosport: 255 for the UEGO/240 for the Innovate, 366 for the gauges/pod, 71 for the additional water temp gauge, total around 700.
Defi: 799 for three gauges/pod, 255 for the UEGO, 100 or so for the extra gauge, total around 1155, too damn pricey

I'm on the fence between the PLX and the Prosport. Anyone have any info/help/suggestions for me here? And is anyone actually running a PLX setup? Thanks in advance.
