Is one preferable over the other, and can they be used for Fancy shapes? How much do these types of reports cost.

Thanks.

I have used both machines and I would consider them equal.
Yes, they do fancy shapes. We don't charge anything and we Sarin every diamond we have except melee. Of the dealers that have them, I do not know any that charge for the reports even though the machine costs $25,000! Cost of doing business these days.

If you are using HCA for round diamonds then I prefer you enter Sarin angles.

Sarin measures pavilion angles with the best accuracy, and if you try entering 0.1 degree for C and P or 0.1% variations for D and T, you will see why the pavilion angle is the most important bit of data.
