I think the tape ones look "crisper" like they take an edge well where you fold them, and then the panel part remains pretty flat. You see a bunch of individual triangles that together form a tape creation.

The metal seems more malleable or fluid and doesn't seem as flat in the panel part. Like it makes a crisp fold at the pointy edges, but then bends slightly between folds. It gives it a softer, more fluid feel.

This cropped picture from flicker shows an area that looks like a star shaped bowl to me rather than a group of individual triangles. Maybe it's the lighting. Maybe it's the metal that will bend into a shape and then retain that shape, instead of bouncing back like plastic. Either way, I like it.
