vinyl vs. hardiboard

What is the price difference between the two? I'm on the fence still if I should DIY or contract out.

I like the hardiplank lap siding, but haven't priced it out yet.

hardi cost about double that of an average vinyl siding, maybe a little more since there are so many cheap vinyl siding products. The trim is where you will feel the biggest difference. If you plan to use Azek, Koma etc the cost of trim can be 5x as much as vinyl accessories, not to mention more labor intensive.
