Default Lowrance hook 5 or Garmin 54dv

Need some advice from the collective wisdom... My Garmin 545s finally died and I need to replace.

I have bought the Lowrance Hook 5 but have hesitated on installing it while I considered the Garmin 54dv. The Garmin is $200 more. Just had a friend txt me tonight that his Lowrance unit just died (only about a year old), giving my more to think about

So, the question.. Does anyone have any pros/cons for the life expectancy of the Lowrance units. Is there a compelling reason to buy the Garmin over the Lowrance?
