from my experience a 2 handed bow is better... Why?
- Better Attack Speed
- DPS difference is not much
- Bows are worth more
- If you can find with one with +(###) on every hit it's amazing
- Again if it's socketed you can add an emerald get and because you're shooting faster your critical chances are more
- they look a lot better lol

DPS difference is not much
wrong, maybe raw dps, but xbows deal alot more damage than bows
see that min-max damage on bows and xbows, well the maximum damage of bows is the minimum of xbows.
there are bows that are better than xbows for sure, but ultimately, if you want to have the highest DPS possible, go with xbows
and look at the spread on bows, 400-1000+-, and for xbows 1000-14000+-,
Bow has higher attack speed, but xbow has steadier damage output.
Look at the max and min damage. Bows are usually 4XX-10XX, while xbow of the same dps probably has 8XX-10XX.
If you use a bow you fire more frequently, but sometimes you could have got a very low damage per hit.
And when you're kiting you probably don't have a chance to keep firing...

what he said....
i try all 1hand crossbow, 2hand crossbow and bow, my bow got 1340 dps, 50% crit damage, 11 attack speed and a socket with 100% crit damage in it. then i bought a manticore with 2 socket ( 2 100% crit damage onm it) 89% crit damage and 200 dex, i lost 10k dps and .60 attack speed. yes i was criting highter then a bow but alot slower. so i sujest a bow for every demon hunter:p
2hxbow = huge crits, great dps, very slow
2hbow = higher non-crit dmg, comfortable speed
1hxbow = higher crit chance, fast and fun, huge dps range so sometimes big crits, sometimes it's like you didn't shoot at all.
2x 1hxbow = definitely not the best dps but certainly the most bad a**.
