Lower Cost Alternative To HID Prox Reader

Just looking at driving costs down where I can on my access control. Has anyone found a reliable, more cost effective alternative to HID proximity readers? I have no issues with HID and 9 out of 10 work without issue, just looking to be more competative where I can. Typically I install the thinline II series, but have been quoting the mullion style as of late for the reason described. If anyone has thoughts or suggestions they are appreciated.
