Default J2534 vs. OBD2

I'm considering getting a diagnostics tool for my 2009 535 (E60) and need some help. I see some tools that reference the J2534 and using the page for updating the computer, and then there are OBD2 devices like the Bavarian Technic device w/ their own software.

can anybody clarify the pros & cons of each type?

Also, any specific devices people have good or bad results with?

thanks for your input.
