Anderson 400 or Pella ProLine? Please advise!

I need to install:

TWO 36x48 casement windows in my kitchen
ONE 32x80 Single Patio Door.

I have narrowed my choices between using Anderson 400 or the Pella ProLine (wood) series. Marvin is too pricey for me.

My kitchen wall is being rebuilt from ground up and the patio door is being converted from an existing window. This is a brick house.

I would love to hear from the "experts" about the longevity and quality of both.

The Pella pro line is comprable to the Andersen 200 series. The Andersen 400 series is far superior.

Ditto on the Andersen 400. I used to install pella products years ago, then switched over to Andersen and wouldn't go back. I have andersens in my own house and put them in most of the houses I built. I have had very good service out of them.

NEVER Pella, their service stinks. They advertise a Cadillac, but their product is closer to a Chevette. I have never had an issue with Andersen service, quality.
