Gorrel 5300 versus OKNA Starmark

Which one would you choose is both have triple pane with krypton gas. Okna spacer is warm spacer while Gorrel is a non-conductive metallic spacer (so they say).

Gorell only have a non metallic spacer in their "Ultramax" window. The 5300 Thermal Master is a ppg interecept which is a metal spacer.
Starmark is one hell of a window. I think its one of the best windows out there. comparing the two. Starmark is going to have better numbers thank all Gorell windows.such as u-factor. its also a very good spacer thats non metal and not a regular vinyl like Gorell. I am also a fan of their lowE glass package.
Okna also has one of the best warranties .

The Starmark's numbers are better. If that's what you're basing your decision on, then Starmark.

HOWEVER...there are many other things to consider. Quality of installation is critical. Looks are important. Warranty, etc...

They're both good windows. :)

Thank you all. I think I already got the answer after I saw the Starmark and the price, which is cheaper than the Gorrel.
