I like both of these hubs. But the only "problem" I can see with them is if something goes wrong, can I fix it in a campground with my tools? This really pertains to the drive hub as I can live without light.
I can shorten my chain to run any gear in a worse case scenario on a conventional bike. But internally geared hubs, like a 3 speed hub, have many little parts that need to be just right.
