Roadtesting the easyE4 Nano PLC: AC or DC, What's Your Preference?

I will be roadtesting the Eaton easyE4 Nano Programmable Logic Controller in the very near future. If you haven't heard about it, let me tell you a few facts:

 

The easyE4 nano programmable logic controllers combine timers, relays, counters, special functions, inputs and outputs into a compact device that is easily programmed. It provides an

exceptional level of flexibility together with a substantial savings of commissioning time and effort. The easyE4 is available in six styles with 12 I/O that can be expanded to 188 I/O points, which provides the ideal solution for material handling, HVAC, pump control, irrigation, lighting, energy management, industrial control, and home automation. The easyE4 nano programmable logic controller excels in traditional applications where multiple relays, timers and pushbuttons are used.

 

For the purpose of ordering the roadtest units, a question arose about the input voltage while discussing the roadtest with Eaton. The two types I am considering is 24VDC or 110-220VAC. While both versions are available, and I could get both, I just wanted to get a sense what would be a roadtester's preference. This is more a logistics question than a tech question. Both versions have the same functionality.

 

Here's the 24VDC version
