Besides when you run REGEN shields you have to have power to shields to max the regen rate.. Whereas with other shields I can run the remainder of my power to Aux to maximize my heals..
The Borg shields work quite well for me, even in ESTF's. I only assign 40 base energy to shields, and with spec bonuses, total shield power is in the 60's. I also run two EPtS1's in non-stop rotation with two TacticalTeam1's. I also tend to run max defense at 70.8.

I've also tested the Breen Chel Grett with MACO XII shields. I found that MACO had better staying power against big hits, but Borg Shields recovered much more quickly while taking a lot of incoming enemy weapon fire.
