Pro-163/psr-400 (pro-164/psr-300)

I personally like the hand-helds better. I have now found I like the GRE branded models better, although the '163 is the same radio as the PSR-400.

This is mostly dictated by antenna. I am very happy with the performance of my PSR-300 (hand-held, GRE branded version of the same radio).

functionality,
Depends on the function. There are some I would do differently. But I like the fact I can drive the scanner w/o looking at the display. Comes in handy while driving.

ease of programming
Get yourself the USB cable and WIN97 and it will be a snap. But do yourself a favor and learn how to manually program as well. There will be times you'll want to add something or tweak something and won't be near the computer.
