yamaha 85Hp

I am in the market for a new/used engine and am looking at a used Yamaha 85Hp AETL from 2001 with aprox. 200Hrs on it.
Do these have a good rep ? Also what should I look for with these engines when i go for a test run ?
I have verry bad experiences with used outboards and don't want to get screwed again so any info is apreciated.

Thanks

What does it look like-metallic or flat blue paint and does it have a trim button on the cowl?

If it looks good, run a compression tester over it and it'll probably be an excellent buy. Yam didn't make a duff motor in that size.
