Either machine you have listed would be an excellent choice. Here are some prior posts along the same line of questions.

Except for some relatively minor issues, I love my Airsense 10 Autoset. If you end up getting rainout even with the ClimateLine heated hose, as I sometimes do because I like to sleep in a cold room, that can cause a number of different issues, particularly with data recording. Other than that, though, it is a great machine - comfortable, and easy to use and optimize settings.

I had the same choice, I went with the dreamstation because it had a longer warranty. It's an excellent machine, but one big caveat: they use a software here alot called sleepyhead, which does not work with the Dreamstation.

It comes with it's own software which is ok, but nowhere near as detailed as sleepyhead.
