I'm a Stihl guy, but others will work too. I hear the Husqies are very good. My FIL has a couple of cheapos (Homelite, Craftsman) and we cut down a bunch of trees with those two. They are bare knuckle though, not fancy. My dad bought a Stihl Wood boss about 25-30 years ago and it still starts on the first pull. I have an MS280, and it is light, smooth, powerful, and cuts really well. I guess it just comes down to how much you are going to use it and how much you want to spend. Whatever you buy, just keep it maintained and have good fuel/oil on hand. Run it every now and then. I need to fire mine up now that I think about it.
