De-essers. Massey Vs UAD
Has anyone used both of these and prefer either?

If so why?

I havent used any UAD stuff, but I can say without a doubt that the Massey DeEsser is unbelievable. And with the ridiculous affordability, why not, for serious?

I have both and prefer the Massey. Both have "listen" functions which is great. I prefer to use the UAD cards for more character plug ins; 88RS, 1073, et al.
Massey is much cheaper, and very light on the cpu usage. If you need AU or VST and have a UAD card, demo the perc de-esser. Hell, demo both!
