We would have to take a vote. There are threads that go either way. I personally do the secondary route to free up my primaries (for future brews) and it makes clearer beer (for me any ways). Most important thought I have is, the big boys that have conicals won't leave their beer on trub for more than necessary (I don't mind the extra hour or so to transfer). I have my beer in fermenters for an entire month. Two primaries and two secondaries lets me do this and still have beer to drink readily.
On a side note, I go one month at 12 psi for carbing before drinking.
This guy goes three weeks in primary (apparently no secondary) and at four weeks in the bottle he is happy with his carbonation.
