  • MSTest and NUnit are about the same although MSTest has (or had) some weird data context thing and for data driven tests tends to lean heavily towards SQL Server. XUnit uses a different approach to testing by introducing theories, NUnits supports them too.

     

    Hate to be the one to say it but can you not do your own research on what tool suits your needs?
