Default Equipment ???

Here's my dilemma, would you buy a smoker 5 cfm fan system for $200 with a 1 year warranty, or a similar system for $150 and a 90 day warranty.

Not enough information for me to make a decision. Brand and such would be important to know.

I would want a 1 year warranty, if the company does not feel their product is worth more than a 90 day piece of mind, then I would look elsewhere.

I agree with Midnight smoke. Although a warranty period typically isn't a good gauge w/re. to product quality, it's invaluable if something does happen. I would be more concerned with street time and the size of their user base. I don't know anyone using the PitmasterIQ, but I know a lot of folks who use Guru's - I have two. That's not saying that the PitmasterIQ won't work well for you, it just comes with additional risk.
