Default Slide outs HWH vs Valid Engineering glide out rooms

I read on this forum Newell originally installed HWH glide out rooms in 1997 and then starting with coach #645 began using the Valid Engineering glide out rooms. Why the switch? are the early slide units problematic? Are there any year/s I should stay away from and why??

The advantage of the Valid vs the HWH is the former takes less energy to slide out because it has ball bearing tracts and it is operated by a 12v motor. The HWH slide out is hydraulic and if a hose breaks or leaks; it makes a mess.
