Wear Resistant Nozzles: plated or solid steel?

Greetings Earthlings, take me to your nozzle supplier!

OK, so I have poked around and found two types of nozzles that are wear resistant. First we have the plated brass nozzle (plated with steel), available from Proto-pasta here:

... and second we have the solid steel nozzle available from PrintedSolid here:

https://printedsolid.com/products/e3dhardenednozzle?variant=7434732227.

I emailed representatives from both suppliers and the story is that the solid steel nozzles are more durable while the plated steel nozzles have better heat carrying capacity, plus I image that the plated nozzles work better in an Olssen block. Which do you recommend?

    There are also ones from E3D, stainless steel or hardened steel and 3dsolex (or one of their resellers) also have Stainless steel.

    Hardened steel has better heat transfer then stainless steel and prints nicer.

    3D solex will probably soon (correct me if im wrong) have nozzles with a gem stone in the end which can print very nicely as well.
