Question BIO-Spira vs Tetra SafeStart vs Microbe-Lift

So, there's a debate out there about what is the best product to use when cycling a tank. Bio-Spira is no longer made for freshwater use, however, the lead scientist (bacteriologist) now has a company with basically the same stuff so we'll say it's still available (specifically called DrTim's Aquatics One and Only). Tetra SafeStart is now the big name with most hobbyists. Microbe-Lift has been a big name in ponds and is now available for aquariums.

I'm wondering what people's experiences are with these products, in any tank, good or bad.

Poll available as well.

My feeling is if there were one product that worked consistently well in all, or even most tanks,, there would be no debate. Word would spead like wildfire and those making simiar products could not compete.
Many variables come into play with the effectiveness of these products and some will report success while others don't.
