Which do you use more for actual research?

I predict WL wins by a massive margin.

Next if I'm doing work. I try to use Lexis every day though to help fund my Amazon addiction.

I use regular Lexis and Westlaw Next. Lexis Advance sucks.

WL Next for just about everything, and occasionally WL classic. I've only ever logged into Lexis classic or Lexis Advance a handful of times each.

WL. I'm worried though what will happen win I lose my free access. Isn't Lexis significantly cheaper?

WestlawNext is god.

I was talking about the system being down for a bit, and this snot-nosed 1L said "What's Westlaw...it sucks... I love Lexis Advance and Lexis because of all the freebies." Idiot.
