Bpm flash IMO read the reviews car pulls amazing... Dinan is over priced if you had to choose between the two choose ESS imo, better support i think and more for your money.

I have the ESS. I like it but can't give a real answer cause I haven't driven any of the other brands....

Have Dinan Stage II and happy with it. However, as I never had ESS, I can't really compare.

I got Dinan stage II when I had full Dinan setup. Then I went back to Stage I tune after I took full Dinan off.
And I recently flashed Stage II again after installing Akra Evo.

Good thing is: My local shop called Dinan and got a confirmation of my Stage II tune ownership. So they re-installed Stage II at 1/2 hour labor only.

Seeing as how you already have the dinan, I would just leave it the way it is. TBH I dont think you will get much more than a few HP from a akra specific tune.

If money isnt and issue and the convenience of a handheld is better, go for it.
