A flask works better if you try to do multi-step starters, it is easier to decant a erlenmeyer flask than a beaker. For a single step starter either should work fine.

I think just the opposite is true, due to the straight sides of the beaker: you don't have to tip it as far to decant as a flask.

Cheers!

Personally i use a flower vase and it fits 2.5 liter starters very nice. Plus it is easy to pour the starter in and out of.
