Since sometimes the real latency isn't exactly what was reported to reaper, you can use that delta in the playback/record offset settings to get a sample accurate latency compensation. Except when you are doing this adjustment, you leave use driver reported checked because it's only the delta you want.
So in real terms of just daily use, the difference between the two is of no importance really? The 5ms for the Tascam being so low to be nigh on invisible and the 1/1 (if it works that low, we'll go with hypothetical yes for now ) of the Focusrite being obviously equal? If those numbers are true tho, technically the Focusrite is a little more of a winner?

Basically, it doesnt matter tho
