I've had good luck with standard horizon brand. Getting one that floats is a good idea, IMHO.

I'm looking at the floating Horizon hx300 myself. $79.99 from the GSP Store right now with the $20 rebate. Anybody else have experience or input about this model ?

HX870 is what I have.
Just one thing it uses up the battery in about 10 hours.

Score!

I've got the HX851 and was just curious as to what the differences are between the 851 and the 870 (other than "about $25").
