Allsky cams, SX Oculus or Moonglow?

It looks like we finlly have two offerings for allsky cams from reasonably stable companies. The Starlight Xpress Oculus is new, fully digital, and 2.5X the price of the analog Moonglow allsky camera. Oculus is 16-bit monochrome, the Moonglow is NTSC/PAL color. The SX camera produces higher resolution images and goes deeper in terms of faint meteors, but both can capture major fireballs.

Which would you choose as a sky condition monitor for an observatory?
