I have the vp112. Its biggest advantage is that it is 1/2 the weight of the vm 215. If its for moderate home use and you don't have a lot of game to be vaced and stored, I'd suggest you keep what you have. Mine has served me well for almost 5 years.

Features the vp215 doesn't have, that some other machines of the same physical size (but not price) do:

1) controls that let you pull a particular vacuum level (instead of just by time)

2) gas back filling

3) the ability to seal retort pouches

 

After that, it's mostly size. 

 

I have a vp215.  I want a bigger machine a lot more often that I want the others.  (I also want my wife not to kill me in my sleep, so I have not looked at machines since I bought the vp215...)

I bought the Polyscience because it is the only chamber vacuum sealer I could lift.  And that was a stretch.  Yes, I wish it had an oil pump.
