[Bill Davis] "It's going to be very hard to convince me that a marker - essentially a fixed information storage point in time - will ever be able to assist the educated editor in a fashion equivalent to a system of tagged ranges that can not just "mark" - but concatenate, separate, overlap, exclude, aggregate and recall content - from a single frame( like the marker) to an entire scene capture - and let the editor tag and retrieve the groupings instantly and at will."

Markers can concatenate, separate, overlap, exclude, aggregate and recall content. With FCPX a lot of the users think it is cool to apply metadata to everything prior to adding it to the timeline. Why add metadata if you don't have to? Having said that using existing metadata is cool but having to add it is not. As everyone is saying both methods work. You can also add metadata to the markers if you want to. For some TV shows markers might be quicker for some movies keyword collections might be better.
