2 to 7 one pass vbr and taking app 2hrs.
What does this mean? Can you provide more (exact) details as to the settings of your encodes for each app? In Compressor, do you have the framing filters turned on?

I have seen some extremely long encode times when using some of the field and frame based filters in Compressor 2 on progressive sources. Its so bad, that it makes any encode using them unfeasible. Select None for the the framing filters, and then see if your time doesn't speed up some. As far as differences between encoders, if you can't tell the difference between a QT and Compressor encode, then there is nothing to be concerned about, and go ahead and save the time and use QT. Really, Compressor's only advantages are its batch encoding, image filters, cropping, and AC-3 encoding. Obviously, that's a lot, but if you don't need it, then just stick with QT.
