Default Difference between Scanline, Vray, Mental Ray, Vue?

Hey I'm kinda new with the rendering thing. I've always used scanline rendering because it's worked just fine for me, but I wanted to know what are major differences between them? I've never used Vue, but I've heard that it has a really good renderer too.

Scanline and raytrace

vray mental ray are raytracers ,mental have both but its designed to work as a raytracer

basically raytracers need to put all in memory thatīs why you have to be very carefully with detail.

Today scanline its the main choise in movies since lots of details are needed (see Avatar).
Mental ray its also used,but for really heavy things Renderman its mostly used,see Cinefex.

For advertising and arch generally raytracers are used since the two main choices(mental and vray) are very easy to setup,no to mention the amount of pre-made assets.
