    Question Best Minitor Series Pager

    Taking from all the talk on my previous thread, i decided to make a poll about it. What do you think is the best Motorola Minitor Series Fire Pager and why?

    I will never give up my Minitor II. Don't even get me started on the IIIs, and apparently, the IVs aren't too great either. Was talking to a guy from another department and he has a II and said he was sitting next to a guy with the IV and the II went off while the IV was silent.

    If it was in PTL, it would have alerted (vibrate or audio) and then gone silent again. I really want the features of the Minitor IV but I will not give up my II until they make something a LOT more reliable than what is out there now.

    Looks like I'm in the minority here.

    While I've never had any problems with the II as far as reception, I think the Minitor I was alittle better. What really put the Minitor I ahead for me was the durability of the unit. Over time with the II's I've seen alot more broken clips, cases, etc that I didn't see with the Minitor I. The only thing the II had going for it was the smaller size.

    Minitor III - Junk

    Minitor IV - We'll have to wait and see. The knobs are alittle better on them and I've been told they improved on the RF board but I'm not gonna hold my breath.

    I have a III and i have never had a problem with it. I have never missed a tone, i like the features, i dont think it is quite as loud as the II's but that doesn't really matter to me, and i have yet to brake anything and i work for a build houses all day.
    This statements made above do not represent the agency i belong to in any shape or form. So if i say something stupid its just me.
