Air spring compressor - manual or auto?

I have no experience with air springs and am curious what the pro's and cons of each type of compressor kit is. Auto leveling kits look nice, but I am unsure if the inability to view and set pressure manually would be more trouble than it's worth.

Any insight is appreciated.

I have an air lift wireless One system for my truck and so far I really like it. Cheap and simple and it works
