Default Evx S24 vs 534

I am looking at buying a Vertex/Motorola portable for DMR . I have been looking at the s24, 534, and 720- I dropped the 720 from my list just based on the programming cable- I own cables that will program the other 2 and have access to vertex cps so that isn’t an issue. Looking for opinion - good and bad on these 2 and on the 720 if it is worth the extra cost.
Thanks
Steve

I physically like the S24. Probably compare it to the SL3500 but the antenna isn't quite as effecient compared to MotoTRBO radios. It does program and can be charged via micro-USB just like the SL series. If you need features like IPSC or RAS, Motorola has not added that functionality in the new CPS release for the EVX series radios that they still carry.

Is the 3 watts on the s24 a noticeable difference vs a 4 watt 534?
