Ok guys, so I currently have a BB security system and was looking to upgrade to something with remote start and I have narrowed my search down to 2

Auto Page RS-860 (http://cgi.ebay.com/Autopage-RS-860LCD-2WAY-LCD-REMOTE-START-ALARM_W0QQitemZ130007176528QQihZ003QQcategoryZ9483 3QQcmdZViewItem) $140 +S&H

Viper 791xv (http://www.bargainunlimited.com/servlet/Detail?no=184) ~$185+S&H

I will also like to get the window module and area sensor that alerts when people get TOO close.

Whats the difference between these two brands. Is it like comparing Boss Sub w/ Pioneer sub or what?

i install the auto page all the time, i really like them.

the viper is pretty good too.

is there a significant differnce between the two?

i've sat down and compared specs; it seems like the Auto Page has better options than the viper, Having said that I don't see what makes Viper all that special?

I have that Autopage alarm and I love it. The ONLY issue I have with it is that if the alarm gets triggered accidentally, you cannot shut it off for about 7 seconds. It can be rather embarassing.
