The way I understand it, the antimode is press one button and a few minutes later, done, you should have relatively flat room FR. A few buttons for some basic adjustments.
The BFD is completely manual. You use it in conjuction with a computer (near the equipment, prefer a laptop) and REW and an SPL. The combination of the 3 will allow you to manually adjust the FR with filters that REW will apply to the BFD which in turn should flatten your FR. It can be intimidating at first but once you get the hang of it, it's not bad.
Basically if you want an easy way to flatten your FR, go antimode. If you're the type that likes to tweak, go bfd.
Neither, however will correct time domain issues, which is a while 'nudder ballgame! (Actually the bfd is supposed to do something
with time domain stuff but I have no friggin' idea)
I'm considering (more like begging the misses) to get an SVS EQ1 which does both. It's not cheap though, almost $800.
