Default EZDrummer or BFD Eco

After doing some internet searching, listening, and reading I've narrowed my choices to a virtual drum machine down two these two. Just looking for some input via the forum before I actually purchase one or the other.

A bit of extra info -
Price was an issue - wanted to stay at or under the $150, for now.
I need something I can put my own beats into. Need to be able to customize it.
Sound quality is very important.
Current setup- Win XP SP3
PT - 8
i5 w/ 4 GB RAM

TIA

I'm leaning towards EZDrummer right now. Any users have any thoughts on why it might (or might not) be a better choice than BFD's Eco?

I would visit each company's website and look at some videos. I'm not sure if BFD has built-in loops(ezdrummer does). I have been very happy with ezdrummer and have since stepped up to SD2 with some expansion kits. SD2 will see and utilize all the ezdrummer kits and grooves.

Thanks Albee. I was really impressed with the demo sounds of EZ over BFD Eco (though I've read that BFD 2 sounds much better!?!?). Plus the fact that SD2 can see and use EZ's grooves is awesome. From what I'd read I don't think that BFD2 can plays so nicely with Eco. Sooo . . . EZ it is.
