I use a handheld pip-boy so that vanilla pip-boy doesn't go through some armors I have and I just prefer it because I find it more modern and cool instead of something that is always on your wrist.

Well i prefer the vanilla pipboi since the handheld ones are pretty buggy.

I use the Pip-Boy 2501. No problems so far in my New Vegas and it fits the athmosphere of Fallout perfectly, looks really nice aswell

Edit: Here is the link to the mod:

I'd say that it would come down to whether or not you want to use custom armors. If you are using custom armors,it's best to just assume that they aren't really built for the vanilla Pip-Boy and to use the handheld mods instead. I personally use the handheld mods cause I think the vanilla Pip-Boy looks really bulky and not very aesthetically pleasing,to me anyways.

I prefer the normal wrist mounted one myself, the hand-held ones are  too visually buggy for me to want to use them, especially that "arms over the head" animation bug in 1st person. I also don't care about using amours that don't play nicely with the normal pip-boy.

If you find the default pip-boy to be too bulky, give this one a try: https://www.nexusmods.com/newvegas/mods/49732

It honestly depends on your mood, the character, and mods. Sometimes I really dig the Pip-Boy 2000/2050/2501 for 4 and Vegas, and for characters like the courier it makes better sense for them to have an older model imo. And obviously if in NV you wanna use mods like Drag's FO4 PA ports, you need a handheld. But sometimes, especially with FO4 and FO3 it feels like the wrist mounted PB is essential to the character to me. But that's just my thoughts. Basically go with whatever you are feeling at the moment, you can always change it.

I'm not a fan of them. They are usually pretty buggy and do not receive controller inputs very well. Many of them look nice though, and It's all personal choice. I'd love to download Drag's armour mods, but the handheld requirements weren't worth it in my experience. I don't get the hate for the wrist mounted version, though. IT's bulky, high- tech, and a little tacky, making it consistent with almost every piece of 60's/ 70's themed technology in game.

Definitely a fan of the vanilla PB. 1-there's dozens of reskins for it 2-it's not buggy. I also do a lot with screen shots and armor mashups that I don't want the PB to show for and yet need it in game for inventory etc. I use this mod for that without a hitch

@"Austaneous236" I've never had much trouble with A Familiar Friend, or it's newer counterpart found here. Not looking to convert you or anything, but for FNV I've found this a decent enough replacer that hasn't given me issues.

It's really a personal choice. Sometimes for me, I want to go back to the regular wrist mounted pip boy. The only thing I hated about it was that it doesn't have a female mesh unless you use a fix for it. Currently, I'm still using a familiar friend since it's more lore friendly and it's not high tech like the Readius.
