Auto tensioner vs Manual tensioner

One question. Why is the manual tensioner better, less prone to failure, etc than the stock auto tensioner? From my understanding the manual one needs to be adjusted with the timing belt change, whereas the auto doesn't. What gives guys? Need quick answers as the 2001 SH is in the shop. We already know we need new cams / camshafts.
