Best string trimmer among these brands?

What's the best string trimmer among these brands: Stihl, Redmax, Shindawa? Local merchant is having a 10% off open house sale this week and I've been thinking of replacing my 7 year old JD trimmer (can't get some parts for it anymore). He carries these brands. How much below retail can one realisitically purchase a trimmer?

I have used both Stihl and Shindaiwa and I prefer the Shindaiwa. It has taken a beating and never quits.

Redmax outlasts them all...by far the better mower, tends to be about 1-2lbs heavier, but they eat up everything dude
