A-Designs HM2 Nail vs Elysia MPressor

Well the title says it all. I'm looking for a great all-round compressor for tracking and mixing. I have narrowed it down to those two units. I like the GR limiter and overall creative capabilities of the MPressor (and the fact that it is German), but also find the the two thresholds combination and mix knob on the Nail very interesting.
Has anyone had a chance to use both ?

Getting the Xpressor today, which is NOT an MPressor, but also looking at the Nail. You probably can get both. After I check out the Xpressor, may not need the nail unless I'm doing DUAL MONO. Hoping this BUMP up will get an answer.

two totally different comps.
i have both and plan to keep both.
if you are into the 500 format the expressor is very nice, more of a clean comp, and for stereo, defiantly worth cooking at elysia did a great job on this beauty.
i the HM2 NAIL is an a work of art and one that everyone should have IMHO!
