I was pretty happy with the Home Depot brand CharmGlow gas grill. Relative to some other brands, it was inexpensive. In Seattle, keeping it outside (even under a cover) meant that it was going to break down and corrode quicker than in some other places. It worked well but, alas, it's almost dead after about 8 years.
I would avoid the ceramic-coated cast iron cooking surfaces, mostly because you can't use a wire grill brush to clean.
I've been rocking a Charmglow for about a decade, used heavily like Jorge mentioned and covered when not in use. My dad liked his so well that he bought two more, put them in a trailer and brought myself and brother-in-law each one.
The outside still looks great. The burners are about shot as well as the drip trays. It's time for either an overhaul or a new grill. Leaning towards something new.
