Which is better and more worth it in the long run?  If I were to get ant of these guns, I would have them for a while.

Neither is better, it comes down to personal preference.

 

Pros of the Geo: lighter, shorter (in height), easier to fully diassemble, fewer orings, no LPR to tune/maintain, better efficiency in my experience and according to a few tests, way better board (LCD whereas DM just has an LED), better trigger IMO (more range of adjustment), better feedneck

 

Pros of the DM: smoother/less vibration felt through the frame, less recoil due to the increased weight, very nice ergonomics, quieter when tuned

 

I would STRONGLY suggest shooting both and making your own judgments.  This is a big investment to base on the opinions of others.

 

One thing about the ergonomics is that the DM has great contouring to the grips but there is VERY little space between the trigger guard and regulator so you cant really wrap your whole hand around it.  That's a pet peeve of mine on markers since thats how I hold pretty much any gun.
