Well, based on the way you phrased it, I would say you don’t seem really interested in exploring what the other VC could do for you – after all, you called them “mediocre.”
While it is true that certain firms have prestige to their name, which can bring follow on investments, other firms bring different things to the table.
My own company, http://ROCETEER.com works with VCs and accelerators/incubators to provided additional services to the teams that they have invested in, to help increase the value of their overall portfolio. We give teams access to resources that can be way more valuable than money.
So, look at the firms. Look at the offers. See what is behind the dollar amount. Then decide.
