I am hoping to grind my bankroll up to $100 to enable me to purchase a HUD for grinding more effectively and I wondered what the community's consensus was on each of the products. I am yet to trial HEM2 but I was really, really impressed with PT4. I am aware that grinding my roll up to $100 to purchase a HUD sounds counter-intuitive but I see poker as a RPG whereby you grind your EXP (bankroll) up to a certain level then you use your EXP points to invest in a new skill (strength stat) that will enable you to beat your enemies effectively (DMG per sec) haha.
Holdem Manager is very cool and has some real nice features to analyse leaks in your game. It has decent support and is easy enough to use but you will have to invest some time into it to get your value back. Oh and I'm pretty sure Holdem Manager was developed as an evolution to Poker Tracker but don't quote me.
I'm not sure why you limit yourself with just two options, there are a lot of HUDs you can choose from and almost all has 30 days free trial, Try them one by one and see what fits you. , I suggest DriveHUD because its easy to setup and customize to your liking.
