The Alincos are fine, but if you want true discriminator output (say for GMSK) a mod should be applied.
I've had good luck with the Alinco DR135's. They're only $165 but are 2m only. You do have to deal with the DB-9 data port.
I've used them for APRS digipeating and as AllstarLink simplex nodes.
I am tempted to get a TM-V71A based on what I'm reading here though. Seems like the best fit for fldigi on RPi/DRAWS/DigiLink stack.

I'll pile in positively on Ham Made Parts
(no affiliation, just a happy customer.)
Nice and easy to deal with.

I believe Ham Made Parts have a cable for this.

You missed one vendor, Bridgecom. They make a series of single band
radios that have a 15 pin connector for interfacing. These are resonably
priced ($240) units. I will be setting one up for evaluation with the
DRAWS unit in the coming weeks.
