I prefer a hub that doesn’t require frequent service, by the user or his/her shop. Even 350s will get multiple seasons from the rear driveside bearing - the only one that lacks a degree of user-serviceability. After almost two decades in a shop, I haven’t seen a freehub mechanism more durable than DT’s. Yeah, I’m not crazy about the ubiquity; I like variety. But they work, and I like the ease of selling that fact. And you can use their other “user serviceable” side to your advantage if you own multiple bikes, and interchange wheels, end caps, and freehubs all willy-nilly. I like RF/Fox/Easton’s current effort at rebranding (OK, not so much Fox’s effort...). But I’m pretty sure I have yet to meet a durable Raceface product.
