I prefer Ventrillo due to the simplicity required to get up a running at first. Also I think the TTS option is a lot cleaner and better than TS3. Finally a GREAT feature of Vent in my opnion is the usernames. When my gaming clan had Vent, I logged in with my own custom password. If I logged in from another computer, I still had my title and rights. With TS3 its a per computer basis. So if I reformat my computer and login; my record of logins, title, permissions, etc have to be reset.

I have used all 3 but only once have I used Mumble, so not much usuable experience.

I have used all three. I am most comfortable with Ventrilo, because that was the standard for many years. However, in the past 6 months I've been using Mumble and have grown fond of it and the elimination (mostly) of the voice delay is imperative for gaming environments, in my opinion. If I had to pick on a go forward basis I would choose Mumble.

The reason I choose Mumble of the other two, is while TeamSpeak 3 is very close, Mumble has the best sound clarity as well as latency compared to the other two. The design is a lot more simplistic, and the privileges can be setup in such a way it is able to be customized a lot more that Ventrilo.
Honestly, I don't even consider Ventrilo a decent platform for VoIP anymore. There has been nothing new added to it in YEARS and while it does work. The Quality and Latency is lacking by a great margin.
TeamSpeak 3 is a lot more FEATURE rich, regarding customization of the actual server-side images and styles. But it does have the largest learning curve of all three which makes it difficult for a lot of new people to pick up.
3.) Do you have personal experience with all three choices?
A. Yes, as well as hosted a custom side-by-side comparison for people to see the difference in each one and why one excelled over the other.

I have all three and Dolby Axon. Tend to use Axon as it is pretty much skype but only for gaming. For larger things I prefer TS3

Teamspeak3

The interface and controls are almost exactly the same between Mumble and TS3, and sound quality/lag isnt really different either. Thing is, TS3 is easier to manage and actually has a mobile client that can use push-to-talk.

Oh, and TS3 has this thing where there's a tiny delay before it "turns off" the push to talk. good to eliminate stuttering or letting off the button too early. The middle-click on my mouse is starting to go, so this is nice.

1.) Which VOIP software do you prefer?

Teamspeak 3

2.) Please explain your answer to question 1.

Better 'back end' for administrative work with separate ranks and channel ranks. Better voice quality if set up right. Comparing default mumble vs default TS3 uses different codec for audio, once changed they sound exactly the same. Less confusion in chat with talking, mumble's "click on user/channel" to talk to that user/channel is absurd, and leads to people talking in different channels all the time.

3.) Do you have personal experience with all three choices?

Yes

1.) Which VOIP software do you prefer?

Mumble

2.) Please explain your answer to question 1.
I am very loyal to Mumble. I've been using it for at least the last 2 years, if not longer. And I've yet to find another VIOP client that is both as easy and feature packed as Mumble. (I will agree TS3 is close, but quality is sub-par compared to mumble)
On top of that, Mumble is open source. Meaning any one of us could write a plugin, add on, w/e and be able to use it. I do not think you have this option for TS3 or Vent.

3.) Do you have personal experience with all three choices?
Yes. And IMO, this is how it breaks down.

Mumble: Best sound quality by far, lowest latency of the 3, more powerful options as far as the admin/moderator side, and again, open source. On top of that, Text to Speech option is very handy. Built in game overlay is very handy. Direction 3d audio is amazing on games that support it. Automatically adjusting volumes is also great, so I don't have to alt+tab out of games to do that myself.

TS3: Last time I used it seemed very bloated to me. While it does seem to have lots of features, and the quality is better then Vent, is sure isn't anywhere close to Mumble.

Vent: Honestly, I'm surprised this is even a choice. Vent is extremely out of date, has horrible sound quality, and lacks many of the features the competition has. On top of that, the latency is down right horrible. (don't believe me test compared to mumble)
