We present a comparative study of using the IQML (iterative quadratic maximum likelihood) algorithm and the MODE (method of direction estimation) algorithm for direction-of-arrival estimation with a uniform linear array. The consistent condition and the theoretical mean-squared error for the parameter estimates of IQML are presented. The computational complexities of both algorithms are also compared. We show that the frequency estimates obtained via MODE are asymptotically statistically efficient, while those obtained via IQML are almost always inconsistent and hence inefficient. We also show that the amount of computations required by IQML is usually much larger than that required by MODE, especially for low signal-to-noise ratio and large number of snapshots
