We run a seedmaster with a C850. It’s a decent outfit. Deere’s metering system is very meh. It meters accurate but there is regular maintenance to keep everything in working order. Everything above the meters on the cart is good. That being said, if everything was equal and I was buying new I think I’d go vaderstadt
Like what kind of maintenance?

Pulling the meters every few days and blow them out thoroughly to prevent stuck sectional control gates and cycling the run dividers. At the end of the season it’s very important to do a good job washing out the metering system and then give the whole thing a good coating of fluid film to prevent the corrosion that has always been a common complaint about Deere metering.
Same thing with the Vaderstad , gotta spray meter shafts with some dry graphite so they are not seized in spring time
