Just to give you some better advice on your decision.. ask yourself the big question first... HOW MUCH MONEY ARE YOU WILLING TO SPEND? Obviously mercury is more reputable because they have been around longer. I own the new briggs and straton 5 hp motor myself and I would have to say its not bad for the cost... what do you expect for under $700 for a 4 stroke?? It is louder at first because its aircooled instead of watercooled but once you burn it in it runs a lot better... I would overall give it a 7/10 but like I said, not bad for the money! or for a cheap reliable solution with the two year warranty.. Your decision now... Good Luck!
