    I would start with finding which ones you can get reliably serviced in your local area and then start your search from there. I'm still fairly new to diving and no expert but I'm guessing all the major brands are going to be reliable products and major decisions around which one to pick will depend on what type of diving your going to do.

    Good advice the servicing. I love Sherwoods because they are cheap and rugged, but I know other people on the site are fans of other brands. Do a thread search on "which regulator" and you will get a truckload of hits.
