Heartrate monitors

So can anyone recommend a heartrate monitor?

i was looking at the Polar website, and there are so many options. i'm not up for spending $400. i would just like something simple and low cost.

I picked up a basic Polar at Sports authority for ~$100. It had all the functions I needed on it and then some.

My sister in law got the rs100 model and she loves it. Its all you need: watch, stop watch and HRM.

The question is, will it make you run any faster?

Also, will you use it on track days to gauge your heart rate? That'd be pretty cool too. You could be like hannibal lector and note that your heart rate never changes, even when railing around bumps at BHF.
