Can anybody tell me the big differences between Metamesh and 3rdp powers Boolean tool before I purchase? They both seem to do Booleans. Do I need both?

The main differences (within Meta Mesh) are:
1) Smoothing Level - Narrow Medium Wide -- this controls the organic nature of the boolean operation with...
2) Strength slider -- controls radius of bevel at boolean edges
3 Make Welding Band -- adds another edge loop for added control along boolean edges
4) Meta Mesh retains quad/tri workflow with operation aiding in Sub'D workflow and allows more overall organic looking operation than just boolean

In some instances you may not want the boolean operation to adjust your geometry the way Meta Mesh does. For those the Boolean Tool may provide more what you need.

Personally I find them both worth the investment.
