Default Pressure compensated drip pipe to replace soaker hose

As I mentioned in an earlier posting, I am looking to replace
some soaker hose which is beginning to fail.

I have now discovered another possible way to do it.

I hadn't previously come across Pressure Compensated drip pipes

https://www.easy-irrigation.co.uk/leaky-hose-c-240_50

Some of the ones available seem to have mixed reviews

https://www.amazon.co.uk/pipe-This-selection-connectors-irrigation-specialists/dp/B00JEKKFDO/ref=sr_1_110?

Seems that they may be more durable than a porous hose, and less
liable to low flow at the end of a run.

Has anybody any experience of them?

Be wary of the sort that are flat until water pressure inflates them,
they work, and work well but you must install carefully as they kink
easily and are a lot less easy to join and if they become buried don't
work at all. I gave up in the end and went over to ridged leaky hose.

Was there a particular brand that gave you trouble? Some
manufacturers even suggest burying them as the preferred option.

Which ridged leaky hose are you using? Interestingly Google can't
find that phrase anywhere.

I have bought several batches from several sources, none branded. Yes
you do get punctures (I have a bag of straight connectors for running
repairs) To be fair I only use it a few times a year as its normally wet
enough down here and my soil retains moisture well
