I run a 16 inch Stihl and a 18 inch husky.

Unless you really, really need a big motor or a 20 inch bar, most would probably be fine with a smaller bar and a smaller motor (and price)

That said, I would go with one of the bigger names, they're well known and trusted for a reason. Lots of people say my xxx brand works as good as a Stihl thats twice the price, but when seriously cutting wood for the winter, or for hunting camp, I've yet to see one of those that really did hang.
