There is probably some serious data somewhere (think airforce or NASA studies) about how long it takes a human to grok information from displays.

I know from experience that you can translate an angle (analogue) much quicker to a too high/too low assessment than a digital number - that's also why I dislike digital speedometers (I was about to say "speedos", but somehow that conjured up a different image :) ).
