Crestline or Traco patio doors ?

Hello, I am planning to replace out wood patio doors with Vinyl ones. I have whittled the choices to Crestline or Traco (I am not looking for a pricey door). I have never heard of Traco, but am familiar with Crestline that I see at our local Menards store. Both the windows say they use tempered Low-E Argon filled glasses.
Any advice on which is a better brand to go with ?
Thanks

Also check out Pella at Lowes and Andersen at Home Depot. They both have cheap lines of those brands. Installation quality (proper flashing) is at least as important as the quality of the door itself. If one of the brands has built in nailing/flashing wings, I would favor that brand. Also I would use the Pella tape sold at Lowes to tape the edges of any door frame to the studs. Apply 2 sides first and then the top piece of tape so the water drips out correctly and not under the side tapes. Visit Pella site and download instructions to see how to do a quality install.

Look at certified ratings for performance, air infiltration, U and R value, SHG, CDF are a few you need to know. Once you understand them you will see why Andersons and Pellas etc are a good buy. You loose alot of energy through sliders
