VirtualBox vs VMWare Player 64B Host / 34B Guest using Paragon

7 Home Premium 64 Bit host, I've been using VMlite for a 34 Bit XP Pro virtual machine. Most apps run fine, but some aren't as clean.

I'm thinking of switching to VMWare Player or VirtualBox and using Paragon go virtual to create a new VM.

Anyone go down this path already?
Any recommendations?

A big requirement is dual monitor support, something that I cannot get from my current VMLite installation.

I would suggest using the Free VMWare converter if you are moving to vmware player. I use it pretty extensively at work and it works great.
