    A good warranty is most important.

    100% agree about a good warranty being one of my top picks.

    Warranty is clearly important, but I'll take reliability first.

    I've had a bunch of Yaesu's for awhile, beat up a few of them pretty bad (rain, snow, lightning, MARS mods, falling out of the car), but have had zero trouble with any of them.

    Good luck!

    If the warranty is one year, that doesn't do anything for me. Most stuff fails after 3 years or more.
