    On reliability alone XD wins because it's been out longer then the other three and IIRC the XD is now America's most popular selling autoloader and has been for like three years straight now.

    The S&W in .45 has only been out 6 mos and the Taurus just over a year.
    For average man on the street never going to war in Burma or being exposed to neglectful 'maintenance' in Iraq then I'd say any of the three are more than fine being built to 'duty' grade specs toward contract work with para-military and LEO end users in mind.

    Throw a dart and which ever pic it hits that will be the best one for you.

    Reliability? XD, check out THIS story about the 20000 round torture test one XD was put through. I believe this was the 9mm version, but XDs are all very close manufacturing wise. Also, as Janq points out, it's been out longer, which means more time to work out kinks ( along with more time for toys to show up in the aftermarket for it ).

    I, to my surprise, didn't like the XD that much. Slide was too stiff and the fact that you have to manually move the slide catch into place was a turn-off. Also seemed really inaccurate, even out of the full-size frame.

    I'd say XD over the other two, longer established track record. As to the having to move the slide catch manually, the only times I've had to do that with mine are when there is no magazine in the gun and I want to keep the slide open so that I can disassemble it. I've never had to manually operate the slide catch when the magazine insterted in the gun is empty and the slide is moved rearward, either after firing the last round or manually racking the slide. As to the accuracy of the XD, mine is only slightly worse than my Glock, but bear in mind that it is a subcompact pistol with about an inch less barrel length than that of my Glock 23.

    M&P cause it's mostly a steyr ripoff

    24/7 is very sloppy and over complicated.

    XD is too upright for me.
