I don't like top balancing simply because it increases the chances of over-discharging your worst cells. Bottom balancing makes more sense to me simply due to the fact that it makes over-discharging much less likely. With top balancing you also tend to turn a bunch of your charging energy into heat when it goes into balancing mode.

I could be wrong though, not enough experimentation!
