Not really. I tried an Elite STF and a private challenge against a fleet members BoP a few days back with a MACO Mk XI and a Resilient Mk XI [Cap] [Pla] ([Cap]x2 for the challenge) and noticed little difference.
If you cycle your resistance skills like you should be anyway you'll not notice a huge difference in the way they handle damage and it certainly won't make MACO useless as some seem to claim. IMO the MACO shield is still the best shield available to a Federation character; with its high capacity, lower bleed through and good regeneration I'm not seeing any downsides (the visuals are nice too).
