We went from a 5er with electric landing gear and JT stabilizers front and back to a 5er with 6 pt auto level. The 6 pt autolevel was not as stable as the prior with JTs, but for us, I would never go back to manual.
For convenience, there was no comparison - if you are stationary - no concerns about jacks and you can go to jack stands and blocks direct to frame, but for camping, the automatics were fantastic. I was more inclined to pick a site without water or sewer because it was so easy to move and go get water.
Some of the guys with 6 pt were actually adding JTs to their hydraulic jacks. They said it took what little wobble they had out, but I never tried it.
