Default 2015 Honda Accord V6 sedan OEM vs Aftermarket window glass

Hey guys!
New guy here.
Someone smashed in the right side rear window (large one) on my 2015 Accord V6 sedan. Upon talking to a couple of dealers/repair shops, I learned that the glass from the dealer (OEM PGW Solargreen) will be almost double the price including installation as that from another collision repair center (Pilkington). I was wondering if anyone has experience regarding the quality of the Pilkington glass, any warranty issues and whether it is equivalent to OEM quality. I read a few articles about OEM vs aftermarket glass but none of them had any definitive answer. Any help is appreciated!

FYI I plan to pay out of pocket as my insurance deductible is more than the cost of replacement. I own the car and have an extended warranty (5 years).

Thanks.

I don't have any experience with Honda glass but for a door glass I think you'll be fine with an aftermarket one. The only glass I would be concerned about is the rear glass since it has the defroster in It and it's harder to install than door glass.
