My advice is that most styles will work and some folks like to work without vises at all but utilize various other traditional style holding mechanisms such as wedges, holdfasts, clamps, etc.. Since you have stated in other postings that you are new to woodworking, I would suggest that you shelve the decision until you have watched some other craftsmen with various bench types do their work and see what seems to match your expected work style. My vises are common metal and wood vises (three of which are quick release) but I have worked on several style and find that they will all work as long as they are sturdy.

Have fun.
