Levelling jacks: Power Gear vs HWH

Ok...as I've posted in another post, we are thinking about upgrading to a new MH. I have seen quite a few motorhomes with Power Gear levellers and slide motors versus HWH. Is power gear better? I don't know anything about power gear and am only familiar with HWH as that's what I have now. The salesman is telling me power gear is better cause if one jack breaks, it's isolated to that jack and not the whole system. But he's a salesman and just wants to make a sale. Sooooooo.....which one is better? Pros/cons to both?

I had HWH in my last Class A and now have PowerGear. I haven't seen any difference in quality or the way they operate. I had 1 failure of each (leaking seal) Replaced the HWH at a cost of $400.00 and rebuilt the PowerGear (in my Garage) at a cost of $68.00. Although I think both levelers are great, I lean towards PowerGear because I can rebuild them if need be.
As for the slide motors,I've owned both but haven't had issues with either
