Personally, I kind of prefer having a human element to deal with.
Seeing that the strike zone is supposed to be uniform, by definition the more precise way of monitoring it would be better.
Personally I could give a hang about the human element when it comes to umpiring. They're paid to get the calls right and they don't add anything to my enjoyment of the game. In fact, they either get the calls right or they detract from my enjoyment of the game. Will he or won't he get the call right is anathema to the job umps are supposed to be doing.
