I've had two Maverick 732's for a few years and love them. For me, they strike the right balance between features and price. I got the longer, more heavy duty replacement probes and just run them under the lid. I just couldn't bring myself to drill holes in my wsm's. I've had one or two probes go out over the years, but replacement probes are easy to get and not horribly expensive.

Just my .02. Got the older model ET73 for Xmas. Used it for the first time on Saturday for a brisket cook on the BPS UDS. except for the power switch being under the battery door( which I did know of beforehand) it's very cool.
Just in case you're budget conscious.

Yeah, the switch being under the battery door convinced me to pay for the extra for the et-732. I have a bad history of breaking battery door tabs while taking them on and off, so I just couldn't see it lasting long with me being a "bull in the china shop" at times ... especially since beer is often involved before time to turn them off.

The first and only remote thermoprobe I've used is the ET-732. I've not had it more than about 4 months, but no issues to date. I'd buy another in a heartbeat.

I have the Maverick but don't use it any more. I was getting crazy readings for my pit temp.
I have had much better luck with Thermoworks products (I have the Chef Alarm and the BBQ dual K-probe) and the BBQ Guru.
