This is a question we tend to hear alot, the difference between the two is this:
Engineered Hardwood is actually made from sheets of wood layered on top of eachother to makeup a dimensionally stable floor. This floor will hold up to moisture much better then sold wood allowing you to install it below grade. The last layer on the floor is a sheet of actual stained hardwood to provide a quality look to the floor.

The main difference between Porcelain and Ceramic is the materials that they are produced with. Ceramic is produced with a soft clay while porcelain is composed of fine sand formed at high pressure and temperature. Both tiles are water resistant but true porcelain is impervious to water with an absortion rate of 0.5% and lower.
There is no answer to this question but there is some information available that will help you make an informative decision on what to choose:
- Where is the flooring going?
- Is it a heavy or light traffic area?
- Will there be moisture?
- And of course how will it look in the room
These are all points to consider when choosing your flooring.
