Barbs enjoy shields.

DH enjoy dmg.

you go with what playstyle you like better unless you want to survive inferno as a melee, then go shield

dmg output of dual wield vs 2hand is rougly the same (assuming equal weapons of same ilvl)

In inferno, Barbs and Monks basically need to go with shield to tank more effectively the other 3 ranged characters which need as much DPS as possible. But on ranged characters' side, 2H is as good, if not better than 2x 1H.
