I've been using TOS for sometime but wanted to look at volume at the bid/ask so I'm trying Ninjatrader. I have TOS tick charts at 133 ticks with Better Volume and they seem to work well but volume is pretty consistent.
When I load the same 133 tick chart in Ninjatrader it's not even close. To get close I have to use a 40 tick chart and the volume bars are comparable but Ninjatrader has some bars that go much higher. I think the Ninjatrader volume is more accurate but I'm really not sure. The better volume bars also do not line up between the two so I don't know which might be right.
Anyone with any insight regarding this.

The TOS doesn't look bad but is slow in real time. I've used Zenfire, very nice and TOS looks close to it. Entries on bar close are one to two ticks off from TOS. Sometimes in my favour sometimes not.
My issue is even though I like Zenfire I already have a broker and don't want to set up an account with them just to get data.
I've looked at Kinetick but they don't support the Russel mini which is what I trade.
I've looked at IQ but Russel data is a bundle and costs $90 month.
Still trying to figure out what the best data provider will be without having to set up a brokerage account.
My post was in answer to OP "trying to figure out what the best data provider will be without having to set up a brokerage account", and which offers TF. I'm not sure how your post helps him with his data problem.
