DricoreR+ vs Insularmor?

Hello and thanks for your time.
Its time to now to the basement flooring and Iím looking at a insulated subfloor system with LVP ontop.
The Dricore R+ looks great but then I saw the InsulArmor type and it could be better because itís has a higher R value, can still take a load, and wonít expand/contract.
The former has XPS and the latter is completely EPS.
does anyone have solid experience with both of them? Better product? Do they off gas and lose R value over time making it lower quality?
other thoughts and considerations are welcome.

Personally I have never been able to justify the cost benefit of these types of products.

Every finished basement I have done was for occasional usage, games/movies/parties, nothing anybody used for living spaces like an apartment or bedroom which might change the discussion.

Insulation is for the benefit of conditioned spaces and is most effective in the ceiling and walls, much less in floors. These products are not cheap and for those occasional uses just doesn't seem like they would ever come close to recouping the investment!
