I switched from the D-ring to the post bound albums. Reasons: 2-page layouts look disconnected, after time the page protectors tend to slump when the albums stand on a shelf, and the pages are not as secure in the post-bound albums. The albums are also larger than the post-bound and so tend to extend off the shelves I store them on.
The post-bound albums are a chore to deal with so I just buy the economy ones at HL and when they are full I start another - part two!
I like the post-bound the best. I will say that the 8 1/2 X 11 ring-binders are good, I just don't use that size anymore.
