More versatile IMO. Does the same thing as the offset if you build the right jaws for it..... and so much more!
I particulaly am partial to the "V" jaw on the side opposite the standard flat jaws - perfect for holding small round objects.
BTW - a "Vise" is the tool. A "Vice" is generally a term used for a bad habit or immoral practice.....

I like the rotating vises that GD mentioned, but if you get one don't skimp. The cheap ones are not worth the steel their made out of. They basically won't tighten enough to prevent rotating whenever you're really putting some rump roast on something, super frustrating.

I have a cheap one at home, and i worked with real nice ones at work. They were cleaning shop at work one day, and I was able to come home with a spare Vise... still havent mounted it, but even unmounted its still a better vise to use than my cheap one mounted to my workbench.
The one pictured is real nifty. It would probably do 99% of what a rotating vise will do.
