Personally, I don't like Remington's shotguns. Held a VM just to check it out when I was looking for an auto Benelli and it didn't really do anything for me. But in this case, it's whatever feels good in your hands.
Don't get me wrong, pumps are great and someone proficient with a pump should be able to shoot just as fast as an auto. But the Super Vinci is my primary waterfowl gun, so not worrying about pumping is just one less thing to think about when a duck passes over.
I like my 870 but I'm in a position now where I can upgrade to leather, automatic transmission, power seats, fog lights and a V8 (not the diesel though). My 870 is going to be my boy's shotgun when he's old enough.
