Need some opinions about tuners

I'm about to order a tuner and some other goodies and can't quite decide. I've read till my eyes have bled and pretty much chose Bill at php till just recently. Now I' am thinking heavily bout 6 pos. tuner from Beans performance. Bean's is $200 more but will reprogram for free if any changes made at a later date. I like what I've read bout both shops and from what I gather probably will be more than happy with either one. So should I flip a coin or what? Just looking for some solid problem free tunes.

I went with a DP tuner largely because of the USB interface so I can load programs that come via email vs sending in the unit for a reburn.

I have yet to install my chip since the trans went. Now that the 6 speed is going in I am going to have to send it in to be redone. I hope that goes smooth. I wonder what the turnaround will be??? Anybody sent one in to TDP lately?
