I personally like post mount calipers because they are cheaper to replace. You can get SLX calipers for around 20 bucks a pop vs flat which tend to start at 40. Plus if you want serious stopping power 4 piston calipers from Shimano or Hope are cheap whereas that option is just not available with flat mount unless you buy the expensive hope rx4 flat caliper which is a whopping 40 bucks more than the post mount version.
