My experience with them has been that San Marzano is dry and sometimes hollow. Opalka, Jersey Devil, etc. are more dense and juicy enough that you could eat them fresh (but no where near as "watery" juicy like a slicing variety). It all depends on how thick you want your sauce and how much cooking down you want to do.
