Need Help in choosing between Weathermatic Smartline and Toro Intelesense controller

I am an Irrigation/Construction Manager for a mid-sized Landscape/Irrigation company on the Eastern Shore. We average 2 installs per week and maintain 225 systems. Many of our clients utilize their houses only during the summer or on weekends. We would like to install smart controllers that adjust water usage based on specific information. We have narrowed the selection down to two units and I need some feed back on the pros and cons of each. The units under consideration are: Weathematic Smart Line series, or the Toro Intelesense unit. We are leaning to the Toro unit because it utilizes satilite data but I am having difficulty finding any industry consumer reports on these products.

Any suggestions would be helpful.

These are both fairly new products, without much of a track record. I've heard more gripes about WeatherMatic's clock, but there have been more installations using them, so maybe that just follows. I won't install such clocks until they've been around longer.
