Agreed it's best to let the reader decide. The problem IMHO with a 
direct comparative analysis is that one method is bound to come out on 
top so you are in danger of making the decision for the reader - hence 
my suggestion of a pros & cons section within each method. Keeps them 
separated and avoids any direct comparison whilst still affording the 
reader enough information to make an informed choice which is best for 
them. It forces the reader to make the decision based on what criteria 
are important to them rather than making it for them.
