The Viper 591xv doesnt have security features, it more less is remote start and keyless entry with a 2 way. Now why in the hell they make it like that i have no idea. I have the 790xv on my truck which is the previous model to the 791 and love it. As far as the prestige models, havent exactly had the best of luck out of them. Lower price than the viper, but also lower quality IMO.

Stick with the DEI models and their lifetime warranty from an authorized dealer. Anything goes wrong its taken care of, it might cost you up to 200 more but thats better than having to replace the alarm.

I use Black Widow and AutoPage the most. I have had the best reliability with these two makes.

You just keep believing that Compustar is the "best in the biz" ---ask anyone who is actually in the 12volt installation business..and you will get a resounding reply of pure shit when it comes to compustar. DEI is going to be your best choice for reliability i.e. Clifford, Viper, Python, Sidewinder..etc...etc. I have also had very good luck with Code Alarm i.e. the TW1 and the CA640. The Audiovox Prestige APS996 is also an excellent choice....but run like hell when it comes to Compustar.

Always had Viper.

I have receipts for over $2500 worth.

Love the lifetime warranty, range comes and goes. Pretty much only use them for the remote start and keyless entry.

Sorry to say it but your wrong. I have installed Compustar for over 4 years now and had very few problems. DEI does make some good products dont get me wrong, but nothing like the ss compustar. Im one of the top installers in the USA for Compustar as are business has done more Compustars then any one else. So when you say run like hell when it come to comustar that gets kinda personal.

Glad to hear you have had good luck with them. I wouldn't touch one with a ten foot pole.

I don't really think there is a "best" alarm...more or less has a lot to do with what you are looking for in an alarm, and what you want to pay, and what add-ons your looking to put into it.

I have had excellent luck with my older Alpine one, and I have put 2 Viper 791xv's in my cars. I love the alarm...but I hate how it eats batteries like crazy!

I have seen/heard great things about compustar as well.

Really all a personal choice. :biggrin: ;)
