Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 vs Roland Quad-Capture

About 50 Euros more expensive for the Roland. But the Roland seems to have more features (eg. MIDI IO, Ground Lift, Auto Sens)

Can any owners/users offer any pro/cons of either unit?

Especially issues on Pre-Amp Quality, A/D Quality, and even more importantly LATENCY.

So NOBODY is using either of these units?

Even just notes on feasible latency numbers in milliseconds?

Focusrite doesn't print any stats on this issue. I wonder why.
Roland quotes 2mS.... wow!

LOW Latency is very important (....Live e-drumming.)

EDIT:

There is very little info to be found on these units. Except: Focusrite has extremely dubious and unreliable drivers - they recommend using no other USB devices at the same time. A shame - it's very compact.

AD Dynamic range:
Focusrite 2i2: 105 dB
Roland UA55: 104 dB.
Mackie Onyx: 114 dB (but this isn't clear if it's AD or DA and it doesn't have 64-bit drivers).
NI Komplete: 94 dB
MOTU Express Hybrid 112db (unconfirmed)
