Boiler auto fill: digital or analog

What are the tradeoffs of digital vs analog auto water fill devices?

    Could you be more specific? Are you talking about digital versus analog meters? Or are you talking about a feeder with a digital meter and an analog with no meter? If you have specific devices in mind, post links to them for comment.

    I have a hydrolevel VXT and several pros on this site use them. I like mine, I feel it's important to closely monitor the water usage and the meter does that. I also have never had mine autofeed, I use the button to do all the feeding as I believe one should be checking on the boiler regularly.
