This is the wrench I purchased and use. It has a very solid feel and adjusts easily and precisely. Initially, I purchased one from AutoZone for ~$50 that was similar to the one in your link, and it was junk. You typically get what you pay for in tools. Also, keep in mind that ideally, the target torque reading for the given usage should fall roughly in the middle of the tool's capability...so don't be tempted to buy a 30-250 ft. lb. wrench as more capacity in this instance isn't necessarily better.
