As I gaze at the scars on my shins and right hand, I can, from experience, tell you Better Bottles are the way to go. The stupid thing was when I shattered the trub filled Carboy I was completely sober, and it hurt like hell having to sanitize the slurry filled cuts.
On the Con side on the Wiki
Will not hold negative pressure which is important if you use a Wort Wizard
There is a simple work around to this, the bottles will squeeze in but releasing the pressure is easy and generally needs to be done 2-3 times for 5 gallons (So you can't walk away from it, but it is only a minor inconvenience)
Note: I still use glass for lagering
