Obviously opinion based but i value complete strangers opinions ....

I've already flashified TWRP 2.0.7.2 and love it.... but im reading that it has certain bugs and was wondering if anyone has experienced them or has had nothing but good experiences with another recovery.

Im comming from a unlocked 926 that ran TWRP religously without a single hiccup so i was suprised as well as concerned with the recent bug reports associated with this device and the recovery any comments are welcome even ones from the mods stating that ive posted in the wrong spot or ive said something offensive !

meh.. It's really personal preference. Sometimes you may find a newer rom that needs one or the other to install. I've used both on my DNA at different times.

Like Mem said, it's personal preference, usually.  I've been using TWRP since about 2 hours after owning the phone.  I haven't had any issues with it.  The only bugs I saw (and they weren't really bugs) was when it first came out and the instructions for flashing via terminal were wrong on the TWiRP website.  People were blindly following the instructions without thinking and flashed the recovery to their system partition.  This was easily fixed, though, by flashing recovery to the correct partition and re-flashing the system.

Yea ive been flashing and restoring my arse off and haven't experienced any failure to restores like those that are mentioned in the TWRP page on XDA hopefully that was a 2.7.0.0 thing and not a 2.7.0.2 thing that was the only bug that i considered a scary deal breaker !

I'll be updating to that, as soon as Clean ROM gets updated to that firmware.  I'm still on 4.4.2 FW, with the older Clean ROM.  I like how it's running, so I haven't really found a need to update yet.
