best 6-valve outdoor controller?

I am installing 5 zones sprinker system (4 zones with Hunter Rotators, and 1 zone drip irrigation). What is the best outdoor controller? Toro, Hunter, Rainbird, and Orbit all make controllers. I don't need any of the fancy items (remote control, rain sensor etc.). I just want something that is straight forward to hook up and easy to program. Any suggestions?

a Hunter X-Core 6-zone outdoor controller is straightforward enough, and can be fitted with some sophisticated sensors, should you decide to go beyond simple operation

I think the X-core used to be the XC. I also like the Hunter Pro C.

I Think the Best is the I-Core.

I am going from memory, so I may be off.

Thanks for the help. I am now considering a controller with a remote so I can test the system more easily. I know Hunter has an adapter for the remote. So am looking into that. Thanks for your help.
