I love the cello sound better also, it seems to suit me.
I loved playin the cello in college.
But it is difficult to transport (unless you these new hard cases with wheels - nice).
But if you have to back and forth to school the violin is much easier.
If I played violin I wouldn't have practiced as much. I practice a lot when I played cello because I liked the sound so much. So, if you want to be good you should pick the cello, because you will practice more and enjoy the practicing more.
