I'll expand on my answer a bit. I've been in construction full time since '77 and grew up around it before that. I've installed many brands of patio doors.
Andersen used to be the best. That was 30+ years ago. Andersen spends a great deal of money telling everyone how great their products are while other companies spend that money on R&D.
Pella used to be very good as well. Back then they didn't have a very good dealer network. Now that they're more readily available, they aren't as good as some other brands.

Hurd might have the best door made but people are still afraid to use them because of the bankruptcy and previous problems. They are built like a tank and the extruded aluminum cladding is the best I've seen.

While I haven't installed Marvin doors, I've seen them and they do look like a very good product.

Crestline is OK at best.

Premiere is OK at best.
I'd stay away from most any of the cheaper brands you see at the box stores.
Simonton are vinyl. You can get them for new construction or as a replacement door. They are the best vinyl door I've seen.
I agree with Carpenter. Installation is extremely important. The best door will not perform well if the installation is poor.
IMO windows and doors are not a good place to try to cut costs.
