Poll: Which Brand Makes the Best Sprinkler Timer?

I'm actually interested to see the outcome of this:

Orbit, Hunter, Toro, or Rain Bird?

Rain Bird. Hunter has had way too many issues with their controllers lately. Several recalls that cost us a lot of money in lost labor. Rain Bird has held true.

rainbird all the way. Hunter controllers may be ok but after experiencing their crappy POS sprinklers I don't touch Hunter. Replace every hunter on property I service. Saves me lots of labor and headaches in the future.

RainBird. The Hunter controllers LCD screen frequently goes blank. I replace every Hunter I can.
