It is a personal preference, but I would not recommend, or furnish, either to my customers. Both have plastic parts that break. My preferred two handle valve is a Price Pfister. It is all brass, and since it has a ceramic seat stem, it is essentially "lifetime", and has a lifetime guarantee. If it should require repairs, and the only one I have had to do so was when a rock got caught in the ceramic opening and cracked it, you merely screw in a new stem.
