I think the reason nobody has responded so far is that we've gone over this subject a few times in the recent pass; sometimes with a bit of flames along with the discussion. Use the search function on this site and see for yourself.

To me the choice comes down to whether you want to shoot using TTL, if your camera and housing supports TTL directly. or if you can only use slave strobes.

In my case, I perfer to not use TTL. I have 2 Sea&Sea YS90DX's and I find that the 9 power adjustments very handy (almost necessary) for shooting this way.
