So me and dh are looking into buying a new booster seat. So do you have these 2 or anyone want to recommend a good 5 point harness booster? Thanks for the input :)

Both of my boys are in Britax Regents.  I'll be buying my seven year old a SK Monterey soon because he's only got about two more inches to go in the Regent.  Anyway, I like them.  They're comfy, they can harness a child up to 80 pounds, and Britax tests at a higher standard than US companies.

Graco Nautilus

Graco Nautilus. Cheaper. Harnesses for longer. Does well on head excursion even when not tethered. Way easy to install. Has side impact protection. And kids so those nifty little cup holder, and hidden compartment.

 My 3rd son had an evenflo chase.... as we were able to get it for $20 through the county and the seat of his brothers' was getting ready to hit it's life limit.

It was a nice seat, we liked it (and the one we got through the county was teh most basic pad, no cup holder).....

I just bought my 27 month old a Britax Frontier.  It hasn't arrived yet but I did a lot of research and it was either that one or the Graco Nautilus.  I wasn't sure if you are referring to a traditional booster seat or one that harnesses then converts to a booster.  The Frontier and the Nautilus both harness then convert to boosters.  There is no way my 2 yr old is ready for a booster.  The Nautilus harnesses to 65 lbs, the Frontier to 80 lbs but the harness heights for both are almost identical so the extra weight with the Britax doesn't make much of a difference.   I've heard the Frontier makes a better booster than the Nautilus but it's also more pricey.   I don't have any experience with the 2 seats you mention.
