I use both in unison and have found where one lacks the the other thrives and vice versa. Completely compatible in every aspect, ignite one and you've lit the fuse on the other (vice versa). Is one better than the other, definitely ''no'' , great at achieving optimum performance for your computer offline and internet speed on-line......no regrets!
