Lyman or RCBS case prep center?

In the market to speed up my process with a case prep center, I know the RCBS has been tried and true but the Lyman looks a bit more convenient. Any experience with the Lyman or other suggestions? Like the vertical layout of the Hornady but dont like the trimmer (unless someone knows otherwise). Thanks for the responses

    i have the lyman and it works great. it is a little loud but not uncomfortable by any means and you have to be careful not to debur or chamfer too much because it does it so quickly

    I have the Lyman as well and mine is quieter than my buddies RCBS prep center. I really like the Lyman one but both will get the job done. It has way more work space than the RCBS does. Only thing that would stop me from getting the Lyman is if I had limited work space. It is a bit larger than the RCBS.
