You are spot on when you mentioned that the differences become far more pronounced when you get into operable units, particularly double hung.
With your limited knowledge of Intus, why would you pick Sunrise over them?
I phrased that poorly. To clarify, I pick Sunrise based on my knowledge of the products. Intus could very well be a great product-- maybe even better-- I just have not worked with it or even seen it in person.

Then threr is the planning of the window treatments as they must clear the windows for operation.
Next would be the cost.
Not a fan.

I have them in the bedrooms of my home and I absolutely love them. (the ones I have are french swings) I use them more in the fully open position than the tilted position. The fact is I really never use the tilted position.
As far as curtains, I have valances and roll up shades. Works well.
