Default XD-16 vs. analog gauges

I'm finally ready to buy a wideband, and cant decide between the XD-16 or one of the analog gauges (G5 specifically) seems like the XD-16 has a lot more information available at a glance.. thoughts?

the analog gauges look cool, but when you really wanna know what the AFR is without having to think, the XD-16 wins.

And the XD-16 communicates with the wideband through the serial port, so it's 100% accurate. You can also calibrate the sensor through the XD-16 and see the error codes (if any). So def get the XD-16.

The serial communication alone sounds worth it, I ordered the XD-16 from DIY. Thanks guys
