has anyone tried vinyl shake siding?

I saw some impressive pictures on the internet for vinyl shake siding. Has anyone installed this? I'm curious as to the additional cost and labor compared to regular vinyl siding. Can someone with industry experience make educated guesses as to the following-

ie (these are my uneducated guesses)
basic vinyl siding
thicker vinyl siding +20-50%
insulated vinyl siding +100% (double)
vinyl shake siding -???
hardiplank +100-300% (2x to 4x cost)

RE: has anyone tried vinyl shake siding?

The product that seems to be on the tip of everyone's tongue is Cedar Impressions. They are similar in cost to regular shake siding. There are very strict installation rules regarding the temperature during installation that MUST be adhered to.

They are quite nice looking. I don't do vinyl at all, but if I was to put something on my home in vinyl, it would hands down be the Cedar Impressions.
