I do not have experience with either product. However, I (and probably
others) would be interested in the opinions you receive. If you would be
willing to summarize them and send the summary to the list or to me, I'd
appreciate it.

You may also find Avi Rappoport's excllent Search Tools site

of a variety of products. (I'm still wondering what's missing for the
people who rated ht://Dig as "better than nothing" and "not thorough
enough," but oh well.)
