General info

csUnit is an open source unit testing tool for the .NET Framework

csUnit is designed to work with any .NET compliant language. It has specifically been tested with C#, Visual Basic .NET, Managed C++, and J#

MSTest is a Unit testing framework for the .net framework

MSTest is fully integrated with Visual Studios and works natively without the need for any plugins. MSTest is better suited for only using Microsoft technologies rather than mixed technology environments.
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

Yes

csUnit is an xUnit type testing framework and follows xUnit concepts

Yes

MsTest is an xUnit type framework
Client-side
Allows testing code execution on the client, such as a web browser

Yes

You can unit test front-end components of your applications with csUnit

Yes

MsTest can test various front-end components
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

You can unit test back-end components of your applications with csUnit

Yes

With MSTest you can test various back-end components individually
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

Yes

csUnit has fixture methods such as setup and teardown methods

Yes

MSTest contains fixture methods TestInitialize to setup your environment and TestCleanup to destroy the test environment
Group fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data for a group of tests (group-fixtures). This ensures specific environment for a given group of tests.

Yes

Group fixtures are available in csUnit

Yes

Group fixtures are available
Generators
Supports data generators for tests. Data generators generate input data for test. The test is then run for each input data produced in this way.

Mocks
Mocks are objects that simulate the behavior of real objects. Using mocks allows testing some part of the code in isolation (with other parts mocked when needed)

You can write your own mock objects manually

Yes

You can create mock objects using the third party library moq
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

It contains recipes for combining several test assemblies into one test suite

Yes

Grouping of tests into suites is possible with MSTest
