UBS has seen editions 1 through 4, so you must mean NA26 & 27.

NA27 includes a few more Papyri in the textual apparatus, up through 90
something. Also the type is a little larger (not much) and a little easier
to read. There also was some error correction done between NA26 & 27. If you
can still read NA26, then unless you are very excited about a few additional
papyri, why not save your money and use it to buy Ruben Swanson's books from
BIBAL press. Ruben Swanson's books are a vast improvement over the NA27 for
textual study however he has not finished the whole NT.
