Can agree with the Standard Horizon. I've had many different ones over the years, although not any Icoms (though I hear some negatives about them within the past three years). We like our SH very much. Reliable, easy to charge cradle with two different inputs - 12V and 120V, good features.
The real thing you need to evaluate is what you want and/or need it to do.
There have been many discussions about this, but they basically come down to this:
1. Simplicity is favored for longer battery life, save the bells & whistles for your down-below big radio, HH are good for most uses unless you sail on LARGE bodies of water all the time and need long range.
2. Gee, the bells & whistles sure are neat, AIS, GPS, etc, at the expense of battery life.
Anywhere in between are lots of radios.
Your boat, your wallet, your choice.
