It is not what is better, as they are both good, but which manufacturer
offers the sizes, types, and trims that you want. There are so many options
that you should study the on-line catalogues to see which can fill your
needs. And check actual showrooms for a final decision.
Sometimes a simple thing can make the difference. Once I had to install some
pots where there was a lot of framing within insulation. This meant I needed
ones made for burying in insulation but the outside dimensions of most
brands were too big to fit the location. A study of their catalogues found a
model that used a small inside body and had a matching outside shell that
was much smaller than other models which used the same outside shell no
matter what size inside body it contained.
Also had a problem with shower lights. Most shower trims have a metal ring,
which can rust over time. Some use an all glass exterior for shower trims,
but were available only in large formats. I finally found some 4" lights
with all glass exterior trims. It does take some detail checking rather than
a generic "this is better than that" statement.
Except for shower applications I've found that can lights don't give off
enough light(especially with CFLs) , a PITA to install unless new
construction , are to expensive to buy and are a heat loss...JMHO....
