MDF v Particle Board

Particle Boards are a slightly less expensive material compared to MDF but it is not nearly as strong. Due to this, MDF has a higher density and is more durable.

MDF v Plywood

Plywood is usually stronger than MDF but it is a more expensive material. They are both very similar so it really comes down to the application of the material. If you are wanting material for indoor applications, MDF sheets are the preferred choice but for anything external, it is best to use Plywood due to its weather-resistant capabilities.
