Char-Broil or Weber?

Hi all,

I'm currently in the market for a grill, but I'm having trouble deciding what is the best grill to buy. What caught my eye during online research is Consumer Reports 2012 Gas grill Ratings. So, I went ahead and subscribed to and looking at their rating http://i.imgur.com/9VpLU.jpg I'm stuck with two models
1. Char-Broil Gourmet TRU-Infrared 463250512 (Home Depot) ~$400 http://goo.gl/M4v3x
2. Weber Genesis E-330 ~$800 http://goo.gl/7oI9k

Does anyone have any thoughts?

Because I was hoping for $550 price range. Is extra $400 really worth it?

TIA

With the Weber you will pay the $800 once, with the CB you will be replacing parts and buying a new one every few years. Bite the bullet one time and buy the Weber.

You'll only get one answer here, Weber.
