Profoto 3.0' RFi Octa Softbox vs. Elinchrom 39" Octa

I have used the Elinchrom 39" Octa but thinking of getting the Profoto 3" because the Lighttools grid for Elinchrom is $571.

Has anyone here used both modifiers and are they similar in quality of light, or if not, what is the difference?

Also, is it hard to setup/teardown the Profoto Octa?  I will be using it mostly for location work.

Thanks.
