I actually like my Prismacolor markers more because they work better with lower priced paper, but I don't love that the colors don't really fit into "families" so I also have most of the Spectrum Noirs. If I'm choosing a main color, I tend to lean toward the prismas, but the SN's blend with them quite well. I just had to fit them into my chart. It's hard for me to advise between the two, I guess it depends on what you'll do with them. If you plan to color more cartoony style, the prismas are the way to go; if you're okay with the learning curve that comes with the SN's, go with them. The SN's are pretty inexpensive for the 6 packs, but I found they didn't come with enough to learn with so it gets expensive when you want to buy the rest which are only in 24's at about $50 a pack for each of the 4 packs.
