Vinyl gutters - Which style to get

I'm planning on installing some gutters on my house and have been looking at both the U shape gutter as well as the "K" style. Is there any benefit to one over the other? Are aesthetics the only difference?

to be quite honest your better off going with aluminum gutters. reason being aluminum wont crack . vinyl is brittle when it gets cold and will easily shatter in the winter months where as the aluminum ones wil simply dent with impact

I appreciate the advice, but I live in southern california where we don't know the meaning of the world "cold."
