don't forget there are other things to consider when purchasing bindings. like boards, bindings can be on the stiffer or softer side. the shape of the highbacks (canted) is also a consideration, as well as how much forward lean (if you use that) you can get. as already mentioned in another post, it's an ongoing debate over whether or not you lose control. many experienced riders LOVE their flow bindings, and rip using them. On the other hand, how much time are you really going to save switching to rear entry bindings? If you can get the performance and comfort and features out of rear entry that you want, then great, go for it. If you have to sacrifice (in your opinion) one of those aspects, it might not be worth it just to spare a few seconds. I use traditional toe and ankle strap bindings, and it takes just a few seconds to strap in. At the end of the day, I am of the opinion that personal preference overrides all considerations. What do YOU want and like in a binding. That's the questions.
