I am thinking of going with one of these on my new M-4. I want it for co-witness with my BUIS . Has anyone out there compared both of these ? They both look so much alike , it almost looks as is they were produced at the same factory. The EoTech I am looking at is the 512 model . I want to know if it is worth the extra 100.00 .

The Eotech does make the Bushnell, but the EO is supposed to be tougher than the Bushy. (Shrug) 
I'd get the EO WITH the "AA" batteries if it were me, Brother.
 
The "N" batteries for the Bushy and some Eotechs make for a very short battery life and are not easily found. Being able to use "AA" batteries makes the Eotech a better buy for me.
 
As an aside, have you seen the new Aimpoint T1??? Whistling

the 512 has a slightly bigger viewing screen than the bushnells, other than that.. on thing you should be aware of about eo's --- the circuitry is finicky and during cold weather operation will "shut off" and reset the holo. this has been mentioned several times on snipershide, and the one I have has been sent back once for this already. the bushy has a greater likely hood of this being fixed.

I went with Aimpoint Comp M4  mainly due to the ability to use AA battery which lasts virtually forever in this scope as opposed to a relatively short life with the EOTech.  If I was taking it into combat somewhere HOT the Eotech would be a good pick but for me personally I wanted the long battery life and ability to use a commonly found battery and It's cold here as in -20 the other day.

Thanks for the input guys. Looks like I am leaning toward the EoTech 512 rev F. That one uses AA batteries. - now I've got to find a good deal on a tac light and laser.
