Hello,
As a PhD student , I will recommend you to investigate about these
following points:
1) Speak with the students in those departments or labs, they will tell you
about the problems.
2) How many students are under supervision of your supervisor?
Too many, decrease his supervision, and very few means that 
i) The topics are not good   OR
ii) Short of budget
3) Think about the topics they propose to you? Are you really like them?
4) Consider the social life, sport and computer facilities .... For next 3 to 5
years of your life you should live there.
5) The most important factor: MONEY 
How much is their budget? The more, the better. nowadays, goverments 
or charities only spend money on places, after evaluation of their
research quality.
Good luck . OMID
