Which ECU programmer better, Xprog-m or UPA-USB?

People talks a lot on XPROG-M and UPA at forum,Which  better? any difference of them?
This post make a detail comparison table of X-prog m 5.5 and 2014 Upa v1.3 ecu chip tuning tools. Hope it can help you.

Note UPA USB is good in doing MOTOROLA chip while Xprog-m supports on-board and in-circuit programming of better following chips including Motorola 68HC05, 68HC08, 68HC11, 68HC(S)12 family MCU’s, Texas Instruments TMS370/TMS374 family MCU’s and serial EEPROM’s.

If you want to use UPA-USB, you must have knowledge to use with processer. If you want to use Xprog-M, you must be good in soldering. UPA USB Programmer can realize NEC function with NEC adapter (SM03).
