I've used both, and vBulletin is more powerful for larger sites. It also seems to be liked a lot more by google. Seems the spiders go through vbulletin without much issue.

You'll find very few LARGE forums running on anything other than vBulletin. It's a very stable product, but the renewal price every year gets annoying when you're running a FREE forum with no means of generating revenue through it.

vBulletin is more powerful and it's so easier than to installing a hack! I recommend you to using vb

It looks like vBulletin is the one to go with...

I guess it also just depends on what you want to do on your site as well too. If you just want a plain discussion forum, then just go with PHPbb or a free-bee, but like I said, it depends on what you want to do with your site.

Vbulletin is good for business websites however phpbb is really popular I Love Phpbb but I think Vb takes the cake by a slim margin.

If it's being used for a company, I'd go with vBulletin. If you're just wanting something suitable for a community, I'd say phpBB3 would be fine.

vBulletin if you want your forum taken seriously. Although I am not familiar with PHPBB3, going based on their track record... stay far away.

Could you elaborate on why you should avoid PHPBB3?
