It is worth tossing out that the difference is smaller than it looks. The +X% is on the base damage, which after skills will be around a third of your actual damage depending on how far into weapons training and energy weapons training.
So the difference on the consoles is 8% per console, but the actual difference is around 3% per console.
On the other hand, you get more variety in procs... but half of the procs aren't that good and critically, by having multiple weapon types you're diluting your proc rates for everything down to the point that they just aren't helping (even with 8 beams it can be hard to see some of them helping fight-to-fight).
