Woks- Is tri-ply stainless bad because its expensive or because it sucks?

I know that carbon steel and cast iron are much more popular materials for woks than something like stainless steel because the first two will be much cheaper than a tri-ply wok.

But, these tri-ply woks are on sale at Sur La Table so there's not as big of a price difference anymore. (I have a Sur La Table giftcard that I'm trying to use up):

If the carbon steel wok and tri-ply wok both cost the same amount of money, would the carbon steel wok still be the preferred choice?
