Well, I have done them all.
DWC: its great as long as you don't have too many buckets. The biggest problem I've had with them is Leaks at the connection, and water temperatures getting too high. It does however need air pumps and water pumps

Aeroponic: Probably the fastest, but watch out.... if power goes off for more than 15 minutes, you can kiss your girls good bye

Ebb and Floww: simple with excellent results, and you should do well as long as you have the watering schedule right.

Drip, a bit more complicated due to the feeding lines involved, but pretty well the same equipment used as Ebb and flow.

The main difference between ebb and flow and drip, in my opinion, is the media used and the watering schedule, once you have them down, no problems such as leaks etc.

What am I using? Ebb and flow in the veg room, drip in the flowering. No airlines needed
Media used: Hydroton
