bathroom faucet drain type?

We need to replace two bathroom faucets. One company we researched (Pfister) offers two drain types: 1) "push & seal easy installation drain" and 2) standard pop-up drain.
We are thinking of going with #1 because of ease of installation. Are there any downsides to installing this type of faucet (other than there are fewer style choices)? Do other companies offer both types of drains?
Thanks for any advice!

I would not that the gift Of a Price Pfister faucet.
They make the install far more difficult then it needs to be and the price of parts are higher then other brands.
A drain assembly is super simple to install and should not be the deciding factor.
I prefure Moen.

Yep--Price Phister is a low quality brand--the drain assemblies are easy to break during the installation.
