I agree with you Mark. If you don't have a preference, your own situation may show one machine better for you than the other.
I'm getting an Autoset for Her mostly because I had to pick one. Both Autoset for Her and the current Respironics 60 Auto cpap track RERAs, which is my issue. I would have preferred to try a loaner of each for a 2 week period to decide if there was any difference in my results or interaction with the machine, but they don't offer that as a choice.
That said, neither machine has a well designed humidifier that is accessible for handicapped persons who are not very flexible or whose hands shake. You have to be very careful with the Resmed Airsense so that you don't get water into the machine or you wreck it. The new 60 series is set up with an odd angle (for a handicapped person) to remove the humidifier. With the 'dry box' technology, that is perhaps a little better for this situation, but so far, my brother has been unable to remove the humidifier himself, so I do it.
I prefer the Resmed Air Sense 10 Autoset, Mainly because it is way smaller than the PR machines. It fits nicely on my night stand taking up as much space as a clock. The PR was so big with humidifier I told the DME no way.

Having lost so much of my life to OSA I don't care about the physical package at all my only concern is results to make the best of whatever life I have remaining to me. I will accommodate whatever room a machine requires. Mosquitobait makes a good point I can see a good shake getting water where it shouldn't especially on a boat in big seas or hard tack. I was motivated to get what I did because of the auto bilevel feature. As I am a cash customer did not want to risk getting a machine that was not sufficient for my then unknown needs. I have not regretted that choice (except for still searching for the right mask) I find the machine's air supply to be very comfortable and I look forward to going to bed now days.
I use my PAP machine nightly and I feel great!
