Speedo Fix

I'm in the process of changing out my chain and changing the gearing from 17-41 to 17-43. My speedo is already off and I know it will be off even more after the gearing swap.
I'm thinking that I might be opening a can of worms here but I'm going for it anyways...
Does anyone have good or bad opinions on which "speedo fixer gizmo" might be the best one.
DRD and Speedohealer are two I've heard of.
Thanks in advance for the input.

I use DRD and love it. 90% of the posts here say it'll fix your speed but wreck your odometer, but I found the it fixed *both* for me. Yes; my odo got much closer to the freeway mile markers and my gps mileage than before the healer. Go figure!

I love my speedohealer. Keeps me a little more honest. But I dislike my odometer being way off. Not sure which I prefer. Gotta think on this a little.

Thanks guys, I appreciate the input.
Never heard anything about odometers getting damaged though.
