DE filters do a 'finer' job of removing particulates. I've had both -
the DE filter requires a little more maintenance since you have to flush
and replace the DE from time to time, more frequently than you have to
replace the sand filter contents. But I like the way my water looks
with the DE filter.

DE used to a better filtering job than sand. However, there is a
sandtype called zeolite which filters just as good as DE and gives you
the other benefits of sand (no more adding of DE).
I just installed a hayward 30 inch sand filter and filled it with
zeolite sand. It filters very very good. The water is crystal clear.
Call around at your local poolshops for prices, I think a sandfilter
filled with zeolite is the way to go.
