My Yanmar 2QM15 has a Faria tachometer with a magnetic pickup. It's not very accurate though (reads 2100 when engine is actually at 2500). Not sure if calibration is possible, but since I'm in the middle of an alternator/regulator upgrade, I could easily switch to a tachometer with electronic input, and abandon the magnetic sensor.

Any reason to choose one type over the other? Is one more inherently reliable or accurate, for instance?
