Mempo Vs. Andys

So am I missing something here? DH's going for DPS it seems like Andys is hands down the choice, but I am seeing everyone jump on the Mempo bandwagon.
What am I missing?

Was running a Mempo until last night.(Still am really undecided honestly)
My Mempo is very high armor, AR, Dex, max speed/life%... but no CC.
Picked up a cheap Andy's that you see me wearing now for like 4mil... and it raised DPS by 11k. =\

Again, I'm very undecided what I'll end up staying with. Going to test this Andy's out a couple nights and see how badly I get my butt kicked with half the armor, no AR, no life.

Will let you know.

Yeah I dropped an amethyst in there for tougher MP levels and I've been really happy with it. I like the added dps.

Mempo is a massive increase in mitigation, 80 AR and 12% life is pretty neat. Another 18% life if you chuck an Amethyst in there.

It has a socket, most people would say a socket is pretty mandatory until you're done with paragon levelling, seeing as how 35% is a huge xp buff. If you're comparing 250 dex Andy's to Mempo remember 250 dex is only if it doesn't have a socket, if both have a socket then the Andy's only goes up to 169 dex and suddenly it doesn't look so good.

Of course, when it comes down to it, there's nothing particularly wrong with Andy's. Xp farming takes place in MP0, 1 most of the time and you can pretty much have as little survivability as you want and still not die.

Mempo for more mitigation, Andy's for more damage. As simple as that ;)

Once you reach Paragon 100, people might opt for Andy's more.. or even still go for Mempo and put in Amethyst or Topaz in it :))

If you can get enough cc on all your other gear you don't need the cc in your helm IMO. I still crit a lot for my xp build at 43%.and ubers or higher mp farming I'm at 50%. I think all the attributes on a mempo are more appealing than having an extra 4.5cc.

I think ultimately it comes down to... if you don't have a problem plopping down 500m+ on a mempo with CC, then Andy's is rendered pretty irrelevent. While I have the money, I can't stomach that much on one item yet. The 4m was worth it to see how much difference the extra CC made. But I expect to get my butt tromped worse because of all the losses.

No comparison at all. Mempo is best single helm in game for any class. (ignoring set helm bonus)

This. But not all can get them. I mean those "best" ones.. so if you only care much about DPS, go for Andy's ;)

Yeah i'm not sure why you guys are saying Andy's has higher dps? Mempo has a higher damage potential and much better survivability. It's definitely the better helm.

If your just looking at the damage indicator, it says Andy's does way more damage. However, Andy's damage lies solely in the crit chance and not in actual damage. Don't get me wrong, crit chance is good but its not really that much more damage.

Cost aside, Mempo is just about better in every way.

Andys are fine helms, the reason why I don't own one is the fire damage taken. If I were looking for a xp farming helm it would be a Mempo.

Mempo will do as much dmg as an andys excet you get up to 30% life bonus with the socket and up to 80 AR. It destroys Andy's as a complete helmet.

Mempos look so ugly. Cosmetics wise, perhaps Andys are better.

I would actually say the opposite, but I guess to each his own :)

Andy's looks like I'm going trick or treating. It's a damn mask not a helm lol. Memp looks like I'm a samurai.
