It doesn't really matter, does it?
Either you are intent on buying the best, or you will buy whatever your budget allows.
"Best" is a terribly vague word. If you want a 25-year marine-vehicle-use warranty, most of the brands are off your list completely. If you don't want a Chinese vendor who may not be around in five years, all the cheap ones are off your list. If you want monocrystalline panels for highest output per square meter, more go off your list.
So, define "best". Remember all the little things tha can kill the deal. Then introduce "best" to your budget and redefine "best". Remember to add in the availability or shipping costs.
