engineered floor


I am deciding between a couple different engineered wood floors for our on grade basement floor.
I have it narrowed down to a few. Mannington and Kahrs are the two companies that we have narrowed it down to.
I noticed on some of the Mannignton the bottom part (not sure what to call it) has the layers sandwich both direction 3 or 4 times and then the acutal wood layer.
On some of the Kahrs it is like that but then some of the sample we have it is just one solid layer and then the wood on top of that one layer. Looks like it is mdf or something similar.
Are they any advantages or disadvantages to these engineered pieces built differently?
I have noticed this on alot of different companies on how they make there engineered some have the layer and some have the solid piece. Just wondering if I should shy away from one or if it does not matter?
