For anyone that's tried both - which do you prefer?

I've seen a bunch of (out-dated) discussions on the web and there's even one on StackOverflow (here) from late last year but I'm not happy with the results.

Scott Hanselman recently did a podcast on it with the tech lead of CodeRush and this is what really got me intrigued.  He said a ton of very interesting things and I wonder if I'm missing something just using ReSharper.  That combined with ReSharper's instability and performance issues I wonder if we should be switching over here at CP.

What do you guys think?

Christian, CodeRush is much faster now and uses significantly less memory than it did a year ago.

To be honest, I gave up on all those sort of things a long time ago.  There was an add in for VC6 that was essential, but most of it's features got put into VS 2002, and after that, whatever I tried, added nothing I actually got into the habit of using, and they ALL made my system more unstable than it already was.  I am sure that CodeRush was one I liked for a bit, and got rid of because it slowed my system down.  VS has enough bugs, without adding more, IMO.

I'll agree with Christian. They just got in the way, I was constantly clicking away from the menus that popped up when I didn't need their help
