I've been an OpenBSD user since 2011, version 5.0. I find that for me I have better hardware identification with OpenBSD than FreeBSD. OpenBSD works better on my Thinkpad and Dell desktop. I also run FreeBSD from time to time, I started with version 5.x (can't remember exact version).

When I run BSDs long time ago, mostly I was using FreeBSD and NetBSD. I was multibooting all three. At that time I did not notice any issues with the hardware recognition but I was always making sure that my systems are compatible with Daemons. When I switched to laptop as main hardware things became harder so I was using as my main system different linux flawors.

Since introduction of VM it is easy to enjoy whatever OS (in my case BSD and OpenIndiana) because virtual hardware is quite conservative and installation is easy. Obviously this means hat I do not have a good way to compare hardware compatibility between OpenBSD and FreeBSD.
What I noticed though is that OpenBSD has much less software annoyances that FreeBSD (at least few days after installing OpenBSD in VM).
Of course OpenBSD is not affected by client additions, so to be honest I can't compare both except feeling that for now OpenBSD VM client causes less trouble (maybe because of different installation routines).
