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 I'm stuck with two models
1. Char-Broil Gourmet TRU-Infrared 463250512 (Home Depot) ~$400
2. Weber Genesis E-330 ~$800

Does anyone have any thoughts?

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

You'll only get one answer here, Weber.
