Best shingle quality

Going to start a small re-roofing project and would like some opinions on the best shingle to us. Planning on using heavy weight laminated architectural shingles.

It is a small job (porch), so price is not a real concern but I would like the best I can get.

This is the availability in my area:

Home Depot -- GAF

Lowes -- Certainteed, Owens Corning

Local lumber yard -- IKO

Or should I expand my search and look elsewhere?

Any input is appreciated.

Certainteed Landmarks are my preferred shingle but it is not the only good shingle.
