CompositeLab and EffectsLab are two different products, EffectsLab being for Effects while CompositeLab being for keying and compositing. There is also VisionLab, which is both of these programs, all mashed into one.

They are diffent programs but I find myself using CLab more then ELab. But what do you want to do? While CL could do lightsabers if you imported a lightsaber picture it would not be very good at all compared to the lightsabers in EL. Also CLab does not have partical/flare/gun flash generation. CL can do greenscreening and has a lot more grading options and is wonderful to use tweeking your picture to look just right.

They are both designed for different purposes, so can't really be compared in a 'versus' kind of way. They are both designed to the same specification, however, so are of the same quality.
