Comparing Barracuda 4 jaw chucks...

Are there any other real differences between the Barracuda Chuck system - 2000C and the Key Chuck System - 3000C, besides the T-handled key and one-handed operation? (besides ~$40

I figured if the wife's getting a diamond necklace from Santa, my odd on a decent chuck look pretty good.

Are other decent chucks in the ~$150 price range worth considering?

I have the older Nova chuck that had tommy bars or two handed operation. I now have Vicmarc chucks that have one handed operation. I didn't realize how bad the tommy bars were until I got the new chucks. I just used it the other day and it's a real pain.
