5" plank unfinished wood floor - solid or engineered?

We are doing a new hardwood floor in our kitchen and great room. Just about 900 sf. We want to go with a 5" unfinished plank (to be sanded and sealed on site) and believe we want a white oak wood, in a character grade (some knots and streaks, etc).
The solid product is significantly cheaper than the engineered, but in doing our research, we read that engineered is better with wider planks to reduce the gaps, etc.
I would love to know what you all think. Thank you so much!
