i see both in my neighbourhood (southern ontario). but if i were doing the project, i would price it out like this:
cost of me doing pavers vs. cost of someone else doing concrete
i can do the pavers myself because it is a simple job and easy to correct mistakes. concrete on the other hand is not easy to fix yourself and also not possible to pour yourself. nothing looks worse than a big crack down a cement driveway, so i would say this is a pro job only.
which ever is cheaper is the way i would go. .. course then the wife would have her say....

Setting pavers is the easy part and is definitely a DIY project at your own pace once the base is compacted and leveled and the 1" layer of sand setting bed is screeded (not compacted) between the edge restraints. On a commercial job, it takes several laborers to deliver pavers fast enough to the setting area for each setter.
