I've used neither but if your question is regarding the difference between a moving mirror and a moving head then that's reasonably easy.
Moving mirrors are very fast and were the bread and butter of the club generation (the rave generation) over here in the Uk (and Europe). The other notable difference is that it's only the mirror that moves rather than jostling around the whole fixture all the time. Whether this made them more reliable or not I don't know. I suspect it did most of the time.
I always preferred moving mirrors but maybe that's because they were pretty much the only option we had back then so we got all precious about them. I can't honestly remember the last time I saw one in a professional environment.
Oh. And if you have custom gobo's remember to put them in back to front.. .png" alt=":smileywink:" title="Smiley Wink" />
