    Really? I mean I have a vr3 but an ostc pisses all over it
    I have nothing to do with BSAC any more apart from being a muggle member. So anything I write on here is likely to be complete bollocks. Hooray!

    As woz says, no comparison but vr3 does the job and if budget is important you can get two second hand units of the price of a single ostc.
    vr3 is annoying at first but not hard once you get the basics. ostc is dead easy to use, unless you are nick_b
    (I traded up from vr3 to ostc bacause i didn't like the deep stops and bailout to OC was annoying)

    VR3 is probably significantly cheaper to buy 2nd hand but not sure what the hardware support is like these days if it develops a fault (might be worth checking).

    Used OSTC 2n's seem to go for between 450-550 at the moment but I haven't seen that many come up.

    The OSTC 2 series is still very much a current product so therefore the software is still actively being developed in terms of features but a VR3 should do everything you need it to.

    Never used a VR3, but to be honest, unless budget is a major limiting factor, i don't know why anyone would not choose the OSTC.

    If budget is that much a factor, it's probably not worth considering the OSTC anyway.

    Because they'd choose the Shearwater Petrel instead
