A crib, if you have to choose between the two. They last longer over the life of the baby, if you get a big one. (My son could have slept in his until he was 2 at least.) An Arms Reach bassinet is good for the first few months, because it attaches to the side of the (parent's) bed with a side that removes, so you can nurse in the midle of the night and put the baby back into the bassinet. Most bassinets don't go past 6 months, so they are of limited use over time.
I have 2 baby boys 14 months and 2 months and I would definitely say both lol both of mine wouldn't sleep in the crib or pack and play for the first few months, my 2 month old actually prefers to sleep in his bouncer or carseat right now, my 14 month old slept in his carseat for the first couple of months then the swing after he got a lil bigger, but we didn't have a bouncer with him, I haven't had a basinet with either but with my experience they wouldn't sleep in a crib for a while
