Kimber is the first one that comes to mind.

OVERATED?? There are many ways of looking at that. Past, present, past & present
If you are relating to products being manufactured today vs. advertising, hype and popularity I would have to say Smith & Wesson, Glock, Kimber and Sig.. In that order. I am the owner of at least 2 guns from each of these manufacturers...

I have a Kimber stainless. I like it a lot. Accurate and very dependable. Sweet shooter.
But Kimber isn't the end all that they would have you believe.
I don't regard them as poor quality, but they get hyped as though their slides read Les Baer.
I say Glock, not because it's a bad gun maker - it's very good - but because of their horrifyingly overzealous fanboys.

Will be interesting to see the correlation between price and the results. My guess is HK gets a lot of votes, from people who have never shot one.
Agree with the Kimber comments - I had a hard time determining the reason for a $400 price difference between their low end Kimber Custom II and my RIA tactical. Fit and finish doesn't match their price on their low end guns.

My sometimes EDC: Colt XSE LW or G26
That's what I love about the FREE MARKET and competition. I have my likes and dislikes. I am not sure why Kimber is leading this (unscientific) poll. I am not crazy about Glock, but no way find them overrated (they do what they do, and maybe are not for everyone)
