Electric Hedge Trimmer?

I'm underwhelmed by what I've seen at Sears and Home Depot.

Bought a Black and Decker HH2450 at Sears because of a tagging mix up it looked like it was 11HP instead of the actual 3.3HP... otherwise it has a long reach, comfortable loop front handle and can be used one handed (although it's a bit unweildy because the saw body is so long). Haven't fired it up yet, but I want an opinion in case I'm missing something better.

My standard is an old craftsman that went through anything... today's stuff just looks cheap and I don't want it breaking on the first time out (the Management co we're renting from sent someone to trim the bushes and his new trimmer died before he was finished)

So is there a good heavier duty electric hedge trimmer(s) out there, or is what I just bought pretty much as good as I can find in electric?

Looks like 2.7A to 4.6A pretty well covers it.
