Don't see anything in the "Core" that would indicate a significant difference. Some iShares expense ratios are slightly higher and others are slightly less than Vanguard.

Just a rough glance, most are around 0.02% difference. So about $2/$10,000 position. So to recoup that $8 trade fee, you need to be trading $80,000+ (to cover buying and selling) and holding for a year (assuming the stated fee is charged per year and not per month).
