Banks Economind Diesel Tuner or SCT Livewire TS

I am interested to know how manny people have the Economind diesel tuner from Banks in their 6.0 PS. If so how well does it work and is it a reliable product? What kind of mileage can be gained from the Economind. Also, what about the SCT users. The Livewire Ts has a tow setting in it, how we'll does it perform, mileage, etc. I like the fact that if more power is needed, hit the button and there she goes. The SCT is well, pull over and reflash the computer. Is it healthy for the computer to be reflashed let's say two to three times a week?
I have been leaning towards the banks, because we'll they been around since the50's. I don't hot rod, well sometimes but mostly drive daily and haul 12-18k twice a week. Let me know what you think, all opinions are welcomed.

i do not have that banks model..

but i have the banks sixgun with Iq and i love it.
its not a favorite around these parts because it doesnt tune the transmission and there is a bit of a stupid transmission learning procedure..

that being said, i keep mine in " eco mode" while commuting, power level 3 while pulling my trailer empty, and power level 4 while its full with no issues..

and when i wanna hotrod ive got 3 more levels above that, which i rarely use.

the only reason i bought the banks was because i got a sick deal on craiglist

I just bought a 6.0 lariat with 166,800 miles for $14,000. I think is a good deal but I keep hearing about how bad the 6.0 motor is and all the problems it has. Now I am worried that I bought a junk truck. Someone tell me I didn't please.
