Impressed so far
I bought this trimmer about a month ago. I live in an area where your lawn needs to be mowed/trimmed every week. I've had cheaper, big-box store brands for years. After deciding it wasn't worth my money and effort to continue, I decided to invest in a proven, heavier duty unit. This 128LD starts easily and runs great (quieter than my other ones too). I have a big drainage ditch behind my backyard fence and I have to keep this off of my fence. The 128LD made this job easy with its power and strong string. My other trimmer couldn't do this task so the first time I used the Husqvarna it was way overgrown.

As a former craftsman line trimmer owner, this is my replacement line trimmer. The trimmer is lighter, less wear on the body and works great for yard needs. I bought a separate edge trimmer attachment for this and I couldn't believe how well it performed. Overall I will you get what you pay for and in the future I will be buying only Husqvarna products only.

First trimmer I have ever owned
I have used this trimmer twice now and it works well so fare. I'm hoping to discover that it has a long life and holds up carry well. I'm sphere I'll know more once it has had a chance to brake in.

I have had about 5 different brands of trimmers with my last two being Troy bilt and they both were horrible. This Husqvarna started right out of the box. It's powerful and light weight and very easy to trim and edge with. Last year I bought a Husqvarna leaf blower and its awesome too. As I replace my yard and garden equipment I will be replacing them with only Husqvarna products from now on.

2 yrs & still going strong...
So far, so good. Ran this thing hard for a couple of years. I have to maintain an acre with a huge boggy ditch and it works great with the edger attach. and the pole saw attach. that I bought for it. Probably have around 50 hrs atleast on her and don't think I've even changed the plug yet. I used it weekly on 3 properties last year so she got ran a lot. For the home owner you really don't need any more than this, not sure how it would handle daily commercial use but I'm sure it would do fine as long as you're not rough-housing your equipment. Don't forget to put your fuel additives in with the 2stroke oil due to the ethanol.

will buy another one
I use a weedwacker up to 8 hours a day for fire clearance. This hacker runs quieter and cleaner than any other. Its doesn't stop I put in around 4 tanks a gas during the day and its running basically the whole time never any problems. Just changed the spark plug after 2 years. I have well over 200hrs on mine

I'm no professional landscaper, but...
...I am a homeowner with a heck of a lot of driveway to trim, and trees to trim around. This unit fills the bill quite nicely. Now truth be known I gave this unit a rating of '4' (GOOD) on the value line, but I actually received it as a Father's Day present, so I don't know what it actually cost. But my wife...she's rather frugal, so I have to believe it's a good value! ;-)
