I think personal preference about how the pads feel to you (TCS vs mesh vs rubber) and price are still very important concerns.
I'm with you there, if you go down the VST route, the module sounds become irrelevant. However, VSTs can be a bit of a pain to setup and some people just don't have the patience, the computer and/or the knowledge to get it work, so make sure you're up to wasting, er... spending time with your computer rather than your drums.
