You'll want to add your weight, bike and riding style if you want any educated answers.

I'm a fan of Cane Creek's shocks, but it's got to be for the proper application.

The AD-12 and Cloud Nine both use relatively unsophisticated air damping. This makes them a little more inconsistant in their damping performance, and precludes any sort of advanced platform damping or even a proper lockout.

If you've got a shorter travel bike, or a bike which doesn't depend on a platform shock for good pedaling performance (dw-link bikes, and to some extent Horst link designs), then the benefits of at-home servicability and a good range of adjustments may be what you're looking for.
