can just send clock at end of record,

won't follow a MIDI clock if it changes tempo.

..but otherwise it identifies the necessary loop length before recording
    (unless you tell it no)

don't have experience of the others,
repeater will chase the tempo of an incoming clock and do time stretching,

If you use EDP as master, using that trick you do with re-triggering the 
(NextLoop button) will tend to put your loop out of time with the rest.
