Buying a compressor pedal

I'm going to get me a compressor pedal for those times I play without my GT-6.

What are the good choices (prize category about BOSS CS-3 / MXR DynaComp)? What is the main difference between different models/brands? I'd like to get Mark Knopfler-like clean sounds (have to buy a Strat too) and also want to use it while soloing.

I can get MXR Super Comp for 130 here and Boss is probably quite a lot cheaper. How is the price of Keeley compressor justified? What about Carl Martin? It's ridiculous 295 here but I've read a lot of praise? Are these more expensive things relly worth the extra?

Well I got it for 110 and I'm really happy with it. Great little thing, one of those I didn't know I needed until I got one. Sounds great before my Boss GT-6 or with stomp boxes

I have 2 Marshall ED-1's and a Keeley comp. I prefer the marshall comps just because they are a little more tweakable. Noise level wise, the ed-1 and the keeley are about the same. However, I do really like the modded tubescreamer I got from Robert.

I have a great Washburn compressor pedal, about 15 years old I would guess. It sounds ... old!
