Q: What are the drawbacks of Silestone quartz countertops versus granite?

My wife and I are redoing our kitchen. We've been looking at different alternatives for the countertops. We recently looked at some Silestone quartz countertops and really loved the look and ease of use. What are the pluses and minuses to quartz counters, particularly Silestone? Clearly, these are durable and no fuss, no muss. But, will we regret these counters when we go to resell the house? Do people really care if it is granite or do they just care if it is stone (i.e. not Formica)? What other options should we consider? Thanks.
