Artificial (quartz) is cheaper, more uniform, has fewer voids to collect dirt, and is almost as abrasion and chip resistant.
Granite is more expensive, stains and collects dirt a little easier as a rule, and is slighly more chip resistant as a rule.
For durability, I would not rate one over the other - barring a 250 lb guy hopping up on it and cracking it, either is likely to outlive you. Selection is typically based on appearance - quartz tends to be more uniform looking and does not always do a good job of simulating the veining and variations that natural stone has.
Now some of the man made stone counters rival the real granite and othe stones without the maintainence of stone. There are many of them out there and it is more a choice of looks than anything else. Corian is still a strong choice of tops today and one advantage is it can be repaired when scratched on site. If you don't mind the maintainence you can't beat the looks of real stone though unless you need a few pieces to make up the top as the graining may be hard to match up. I am impressed though at how realistic some of the man made products have become. It is more an issue of what brand are available in your area. Most all are made the same way with crushed stone and basically an epoxy binder used to make the sheets.

They arrived on time and did the installation in 4 hours.
They removed the old countertops and backsplash.
Everything looks great.
We have a large kitchen with lots of countertop so we went well over the big deal limit but it reduced the price significantly. We went to their showroom and stone yard. We walked around their yard looking at all the colors and grains and we had 4 or 5 colors that we really liked. We were shown the different stones that were being offered in the big deal. Our top 3 choices were in the big deal so we lucked out. The sales person spent a long time with us showing us the different lots of each color that we liked and going over the pro's and con's of each grain and pattern that was unique to each lot. We found a lot that we loved and those slabs were tagged and reserved with our name. We went over the details as we had a brought a sketch and dimension of our countertops with us. In no time we had an estimate and had set up a time for having PS&T come out to do the
The contractor ( I was looking to have done. This was a multi-project home renovation with work to be performed in various parts of the house. When looking at each area for work,
For the master Bath tile project,
For the master Bedroom, Living room and Hall flooring he again checked for any substrate issues. All baseboard trim was removed, as well as existing thresh-holds. He measured to insure the floors would level up to all other existing floors. The floors were previously carpeted, so no old flooring needed removing and the carpeting had already been removed.
For the living room hearth there was a raised brick 2' x 5' already in place. I had a choice for him to remove the existing hearth, or use it in a new design. I chose the latter.
For the exterior door removal - I had a door going to nowhere (a deck previously abutted on the outside but had been removed by the previous homeowner). For home insurance purposes I had two choices - build a deck or get rid of the door. I chose the latter.
I have several other areas both inside and out that I will be addressing in the future, such as walls, patio and walkways outside, and other to-be-determined projects inside. I will definitely hire ”
