tankless vs. tankfull hwh.

Gonna be replacing my old natural gas hwh, was thinking of going tankless, what's everyone's thoughts?
Are tankless more efficient? Or becouse they have to put out more heat in the short time they go through the hwh do they actually use more energy?

I replaced gas water heater with tankless Bosch unit several years ago. Love the endless hot water. Love the small gas bill. Would do it again.
