Personally, I have never had much faith in what MS writes outside of the OS. No company can be strong in every area. I will not use MS products for anti-virus, anti-malware, firewall, etc. I leave that to companies who specialize in those areas. As far as price, DPM is definately the choice. A lot also depends on the knowledge of those administering and installing DPM. Below is a write-up comparison. While each companies have write-ups supporting their product over the other, the blog below was written by a third party. I hope this helps:

Thanks, although I still need more information regarding features of both systems, I'll just need to install and test both.
