Default Unication G4/G5 or Scanner in SF?

Hi folks, new to the board and really excited to see such a healthy community here. I've been toying around with the idea of picking up a scanner to listen to local traffic. Mostly public safety (police, fire, EMS) or any other interesting chatter that I can pickup in San Francisco.

Right now I'm trying to decide if the Unication G5 is worth picking up against a Uniden or Whistler scanner. I'm interested in picking up CHP, and from what I've read the SF police dept is planning to transition to P25 Phase I in the near future.

Does anyone have suggestions or feedback? I'm a novice and the ease of use for the Uniden and Whistlers is very appealing but the Unication seems to do much better with simulcast.
