Dyna Comp or Super Comp?

Hi everybody,
I've been searching all over the web for someone to tell me which to choose between the classic MXR Dyna Comp (M102) and its "uploaded" version MXR Super Comp (M132), but I've found no answers: while the former is almost always praised and there are loads of reviews describing it as the-best-you-can-find-for-that-money, I noticed there's a lot of fuss regarding the latter (some say it's just an upload of the M102, some say it's the best compressor for that money, some say it's not good with distorsion, some say it "sucks the signal", some say it just "sucks" ). But, above all, there are very few threads comparing them and even if you're lucky enough to find one, again fuss and people saying "I only tried this one but I think..." and so on...

So, since I've found the Super Comp at a lower price than the Dyna Comp (special offer!!) and since I'm not totally convinced with the two knobs, I was wondering: has anyone tried them both or just faced the same problem of mine so as to advise me?

Thanks in advance

Thanks for your answer but I'd rather choose between these two: that's the maximum my wallet can afford!

Super comp was easier to dial in the exact amount needed than the Dyna domp did. I had my dyna comp for less than 48 hours if that tells you anything. The Custom Comp or super comp is the next purchase for me actually.There just sweet comp pedals. There worth every penny.

Ok, so according to you there's not a great difference between the two pedals and also with the Custom Comp, did I get it right? Please forgive me but I'm not native speaking...

Oh its ok im an american and my english sucks

Dyna comp is nice but very weak sounding. Super Comp is very user friendly and has more compression available than the Dyna Comp. Custom Comp is the super comp just with upgraded circuits and has even more compression available.
