IMHO - it's a case of working out what you want to do with it and what for.
The 'with' bit means do you just want to load simple XML documents or several gigabyte documents.
What is more a case of do you want to use it for a particular project or just as an interest.

There are a couple you've missed of as well - Stax ( similar to Sax ) and Saxon ( roughly equivalent of XalanJ, but not so open source ).
