I personally would never have a non composite deck again and my guess is that it would be a very good selling point for a house. Never need to stain, treat, or otherwise and continues to look great. My deck is gray in color with white railings and I think it looks really nice. Sure it scuffs and what not but nothing to get too excited about. Trex is the original and many would say the best. There are cheaper alternatives. One thing to note is that depending on what brand/type of composite decking you go with, make sure your existing joists are not too far apart to properly support the composite lumber. I think Trex comes in different qualities like you mentioned and some of them are designed to span longer joist spacing distances.
