Have not shot a lv1 myself but have heard lots of good things about it.
If we have to stick to your choices, etek. And personally I'd pick up a 3 or 4. There really are no advantages to the 5 over the 3 or 4.

It's all preference and you really can't go wrong in any major way.
If you want bulletproof, minimal fuss, minimal maintenance (just keep it clean) and vast parts availability, go PE. I've got a mint black LV1 available, just saying.
If you want to be a little different but get most of what's mentioned above, G6R. Lovely, lovely markers and one of my all-around favorites.
The JT Impulse is a gem and really worth considering. Hell, for the prices they're going for you can pick up a 'spare' for future parts availability.

JT Impulse - the valve is actually balanced (albeit not 100%) and uses a really nice, replaceable (015 IIRC) face seal to make that valve essentially impervious to leaking. It's a really nice valve if you've never taken it apart.
G6R - The way in which air is routed allows it to retain a very small height and width profile while obviously allowing a total hoseless design. Additionally, the cupseal area is really large, which allows it to close very fast. Combine that with the huge flow ability and it's no wonder the thing is so efficient.
Cyborg RX - The bolt is enclosed and the ram/valve cartridge makes maintenance and disassembly a breeze. Both really neat features that make the RX a truly unique poppet valve marker in the history of poppets.
Cyborg 6 - Dual transducers (yes, they work now) and an improved version of the RX's ram/valve cartridge. The LPR is mounted vertically in the foregrip and the connection between the frame and body is wireless. All pretty neat features, especially when combined into one marker.

Edit: Also, it is pretty loud, the 4 is probably going to be loud just like the Impulse

Performance wise, the Etek5 is miles ahead of any previous Etek, or any mid-end stack tube poppet. It's not going to be full metal or feel as nice as the JT Impulse or even the Dangerous Power competitors, but it will outperform both of them. And if you're buying one new before the end of the year they come with the OLED board upgrade free of charge. Keep the stock bolt in it, throw whatever barrel you want on it and you can add a POPs ASA, aftermarket trigger, or an Inception or Eclipse feedneck if you really want to upgrade it. Also, the retail price for a new one recently dropped from $550 to $500.

It is miles better than any Etek before, and better than any non-lever Ego, as well.
Ridiculously smooth, two-stage rammer/bolt profile, unbelievably easy on fragile paint (better than most markers at any price range), quiet, etc., etc.
Easily one of the most underrated markers ever.
