I have both (Drop Slide and Drop Shot), and I prefer the Drop Slide.
Of course, none of them offers containment, as you know. But I prefered the Drop Slide because it seems to offer a wider "scoop" to lift the arrow. The V-shape of the arm that lifts the arrow is quite narrow on the Drop Shot, and it didn't make me feel secure enough.
They are both quiet, but the Drop Slide is hard to beat!
