I chose an Alpine alarm for my car.
The other brand that was available (Clifford, I think) was the one that is sooo annoying to hear. You know, you hear one go off and wish the thieves would hurry up and drive off.

Alarms are for lazy people and those who want keyless entry(very cool).
Be more proactive with your security. Alarms for the most part are placebos to let the owner sleep better at night and to keep honest people honest. They are not however to keep the would-be thief from taking your car or your belongings.
If you drive a target car, don't leave anything in it of value. DO NOT put your stereo face in the glove box or under the seat!
Find a local mechanic to install some sort of disabling device that is not related to the start circuit or ign sw. and would not appear to be anything related to security. For example, rig up the cig. lighter to be the key to enable your ign. signal. A friend made a circuit for his fan sw. so that you had to move the switch to the 3rd setting in order for the car to start.
My favorit is using a Kryptonite cable to lock the wheel to the tie rod assy. I have been using this for many years now on my cars. It takes(literaly) 5 seconds to install and now you have a very visable = itimidating form of security that will take some time to disable and only if you brought a pickle fork and an extra wheel.
Just my thoughts on security. I have never seen a car broken into or stolen using these techniques.
