A periscope-type vent actually has quite a bit more volume than a round one! Having both on hand I'd say 15% to 20% more volume. Secondly, lint doesn't come out as a solid softball, it comes out in small bits.

I prefer the periscope vent because it allows the dryer to be closer to the wall and they're solid. There is nothing wrong with the round vents but I guarantee in a large percentage of homes, the round vent is either loose or semi crushed. Rarely do you have that issue with a periscope type vent.

Good luck,
