Having experienced with both gazebo and v-rep for a small amount of time, I think that gazebo is by far the better choice in terms of ease of use, ros integration capabilities and documentation. v-rep has a vast variety of ready to use robots and has more options than gazebo (at least gazebo 5 that I have used) when it comes to simulations but apart from that integrating with ros is not considered to be a trivial task.

Hello, Rajnunes!

Actually, I cant give you the full answer that could be based on my experience. Although, I may suggest you to read this paper [1] about the comparison by the criteria: ROS Intergration, World Modelling, Robot Model Modifications, Programmatic Control ans CPU Use.

Also, this one [2] gives the comparison between the bunch of different simulators.

[1] L. Nogueira, "Comparative Analysis Between Gazebo and V-REP Robotic Simulators"
