Recommendation on mini split heat pumps

I apologies in advance if this thread is posted twice. I submitted a thread earlier today and haven't seen it on the forum so am giving it another shot.

We plan to heat/cool a room on top of our garage using a ductless mini split heat pump. We are located in the Kawartha lakes area of Ontario, Canada. I have quotes from local dealers for heat pumps manufactured by Trane and by Mitsubishi. The Mitsubishi heat pumps have great reviews in this forum as well as on the internet. There is very little information on Trane.
The Trane heat pump is approx 35% cheaper than an equivalent Mitsubishi model.
Should we go with Trane or Mitsubishi......your advice is appreciated, Thank you

Mitz all the way. Get the hyper heat version if not already.
Not sure if even trane are made by trane.
Alternatively Fujitsu are pretty good too.
