As a rule of thumb, tadpole trikes (2 wheels in front) are generally lower to the ground than delta trikes (2 wheels in back.) Tadpole trikes are the most popular style, at least in the US, because they're more stable. It's harder to tip them in turns.

Sun/Sunseeker is more toward the low-price end of the spectrum. Their advantages are that they have many models to choose from, their components are good for the price point, and any bike shop with a J&B catalog can order one for you. The disadvantage is that they tend to weight much more than their competition. That alone disqualifies them from serious enthusiast riding, although they're fine for shorter, low-speed stuff like trails/MUPs.
