Which Boxes are Better? - Carlon SuperBlue Hard Shell vs Regular Blue

I was wondering what the consensus is between the Carlon SuperBlue Hard Shell boxes vs the regular blue ones. For my use, the cost difference is minimal. Are the hard shell boxes "better," or is it more of a personal preference?

I like the hard shell for multiple gangs, but either are fine.

The hard shell doesn't flex like the regular, which is why I prefer the hard shell.

Doesn't make much difference for single or double gang. I prefer hard shell for 3 gang or 4 gang. I also prefer hard shell for 2 gang when it is for dryer or oven outlet.

I like any box I can't smash in 1000 pieces with my hammer nailing it to a stud.
