Engineered hardwood. HDF or plywood sub-layers?

I'm trying to decide on an engineered flooring in the 5" wide, dark stain variety.

I have seen some Hickory stuff for about 4 bucks a square foot and it looks like it is a very thin layer of hickory, probably less than 1/16" followed by a very thin layer of plywood, maybe 1/16" thick, then a lot of HDF, then another layer of plywood, maybe 1/16" thick. Total thickness is 9/16".

Then there is some 1/2" Birch stuff with just layers of ply and of course, the top layer of super thin Birch. Not sure how many layers of thin plywood are in there. This is slightly cheaper at about 3.14/sq ft. From Lumber Liquidators-

Which is best?
