We had a Char-Broil that I had bought about 7 years ago. SR replaced some of the parts, but too much of it needed to be replaced again.
This time we got a Char-Broil at Lowe's. We got it a month ago. It has that infrared feature. SR says it cooks faster. I think the meats are much juicier and less dry. The grilled chicken is excellent now.
I'm not sure if I'd want to spend all the money on a Weber. I used to have one and the inner parts wore out every bit as quickly as the Char-Broils. In fact had a lot more trouble with the gas Weber. Maybe I just had a lemon but I wouldn't get another of their propane gas grills.
Good feedback on the infrared....I hear they cook very well.
