Is there any difference in quality between Jeld-Wen and Reliabilt molded 6 panel interior doors?

Coke vs. Pepsi ... which do you like , I've used them both.

Jeld-wen i like.

Pretty much the same from what I've seen.

I got the wood doors (prehung).

My company supports and sells Jeld-wen a lot of their machinery. I do not however have any experience with Reliabilt. I do know that Jeld-Wen does not spare any expense over proper care and use of their machinery, and they do not complain about the price of parts, they just buy them.
Jeld-wen does make a pretty good door. Sorry I can't speak on reliabilt.

Thanks.
I just didn't know if there was a difference between Jeld-Wen and Reliabilt except that HD carries one and Lowes carries the other.
I'll buy Jeld-Wen. I would like to do the solid wood but I need 7 to start and really can't afford wood, so composite it is.
