How does this ASET and IdealScope look?

In my continuing search to find a diamond for an engagement ring, I came across this diamond and was hoping others can tell me how the IdealScope and ASET looks. From what I gather, there's some light loss under the table. The IdealScope looks decent, but for some reason, the arrows view seems off. I'd like to get some input on it. If you have other suggestions that are better than this with similar specs, please let me know.

I'm also considering a second diamond that's nearly the same price.

This one has a better IdealScope, is slightly bigger and has no fluoro. But it has worse color and clarity. Which would you choose?

One thing I don't quite understand. The GIA report has a map of inclusions within the diamond. This VS2 has a nearly spotless map, but I can clearly see the defects in the super-zoomed photos. Why are these defects not reflected in the GIA map?

Any help would be appreciated. I'm boiling down my decision to just a few diamonds.
