Default EVX series vs vx-450

Just wanted some opinion between the radio's
I need them for railroad usage in analog if i go with the EVX may add a DMR system as well

Any pro or cons between the two.
I do not want a continues knob so i may go with non diplay units (only run 3 channels)

Also i know the EVX had the RX issue have those been corrected

On the EVX-530, I find that using Scan in a mixed DMR and analog channel list won't work very well, especially when using primary and/or secondary priority on an analog channel.

We have five VX-450 in our fleet and they have some kind of muffled mic audio. the EVX have a clearer transmit audio on analog. This is without an RSM of course.

Battery life on the EVX is shorter. The 450 can last day days easily while the EVX will be at 1 bar by the end of the day, even with power save on.

Nothing else different as far as I can tell.

I have muffled analog audio issues with my EVX-530. DMR works really well and sounds great. I agree with short battery life on the EVX.

My VX-454 works great with great loud audio. Mine came with the larger lithium battery and last a few days, receive only.
Too many scanners and radios to use at one time, But I'm trying!
