I have the Sun Mountain Speed Cart V1.
Folds and unfolds quickly
The bag doesn't move hroughout the round
Well-placed drink holder
Big-enough storage space (scorecard, pen, small snack)
Takes space when folded

Easiest by FAR to fold and unfold. It is literally 2 very simple steps and takes 5 seconds. Best design in that regard.
Folds smaller or as small as the CG. SM isn't even close (if space is an issue for you)
Sturdy construction, aluminum tubing is not as thick as CG, but still very high quality
No maintenance wheels like all other models you are thinking about
Cheaper by at least 35 - 40%
The only gripes I have is I wish the area on top (in front of the handle where the scorecard clips in) was a bit larger. There is a nice zip compartment under, which serves
to hold balls, tees, etc. And if it was about 3 inches or so wider. The front tires roll about 1" from the sides of my bag at the bottom. But this is minor as my normal cart bag is fairly large. The other improvement would be to the bag strap. While it is stable and again very simple (velcro and tighten) it gets in the way of my very top pocket on my cart bag. Again, minor since other carts do this as well.
Went throughout this same search at the end of last year. I was a die hard for carrying and never wanted a push cart. Hurt my back exercising and tried one to take some strain off of it. I looked at all the carts and landed with the BB quad. Wasn't even on the radar initially...had my mind set on Clic Gear. The BB was way easier to fold/unfold plus the clubs sit just a little more upright. Great purchase. The SM Micro was ok but the Quad is way better with the larger wheels.

I have had mine for over 2 years and it continues to perform well. I walk so much that I am wearing the tread off the back tires(still roll great).

I've got maybe 200 rounds on my clicgear at my club, and that amounts to over $3k saved in cart fees. The only thing I've had to fix was a broken zip tie holding the brake line. I have added a few accessories..... sand bottle, rangefinder bag, and shoe brush.

If you are on a budget, there are alot of other brands that will do the job just as well and you may just want to get whatever you can get on sale. Just make sure it has the features you want. Name the features and see if you can get by with that cart. A suggestion might be things like:
- Brake. Some only have a footbrake (which I hate), some only have a handbrake (which I find to be sufficient), some have both
- Cup Holder. What kind of beverages do you like? Do you need a cooler for your beer? Do you just like to carry a BIG water bottle? Does the cart you have fit that size liquid container. If not, are you able to get what you want via an accessory?
- GPS/Rangefinder. Any room for those if you use them? Any options that are nicer?
- Umbrella. Do they have an umbrella attachment if your bag doesn't have one? Does your design of your bag with umbrella fit nicely on the cart?
- Cool Accessories. They may include seat attachment, mitts for cold weather play, and ohter cool stuff
Hope that helps.

EDIT: was thinking of using it with my stand bag would this still work well?

For quality though, I would argue that the CG folds smaller, has better on cart storage, a bigger scorecard area, and more accessories for extra purchase $$. However, if you have to align it, it is a PITA, and the CG doesn't fit as many bags as well as some of the other carts. Best to take your bag or load the store bags on there to get a feel.
