I opted for a MorRyde manual reel. I liked the thought of it being electric powered but with the only attachments being those little screws into that wood I decided not to. The cable is heavy and can exert a lot lateral twist on that housing if it's in a bind and you're not feeling it.
Regardless of which reel you choose they are an excellent option IMO if you have the room. Over time trying to coil a power cable into a tote or bucket causes the conductors to twist inside the sheath, mine always broke the sheath loose from the OE cable connector on one end or the other.
In full disclosure I will say with the manual reel DW and I both straighten the cable and feed it into the reel as I turn it. One person could easily do it but it goes very fast with both of us.
