Roof Rack: Thule, Yakima, Inno... ?

I've been reading different reviews on these racks and really the only difference that people mention is that the Thule pieces are squared and Yakima are rounded. Nothing really to lean towards one or the other. The prices aren't much different either. Do any of you guys prefer any of these two brands or any other brand of racks? It's for an '02 TL. Thanks

All of you guys that picked either Yakima or Thule, is there any reason why you like that brand better? Based on the reviews that I've read and the comments here it looks like the difference is really aesthetics. I've even seen Thule, Yakima, and Inno pieces used interchangeably. Ex. Inno cross bars, Thule fairing...

Cool, so it's not just looks. Thank you The Yakima racks look a little bit more rugged to me. I just wanted to know that the brand preference had more to do with good build quality.
