Hi David,

I agree with Jim. This has been discussed on the forum, but again

Same text, Different apparatus.

NA27 -- shows many more variant readings

     -- quite condensed apparatus, extensive use of
        symbols, and very brief abbreviations

UBS4 -- gives a more exhaustive list of manuscripts for
        the fewer variant readings it does show

     -- apparatus a little easier to read

Both the NA27 and the UBS4 are quite cheaply purchased directly from
the American Bible Society ($23 each):
