Hardware or Software Load Balancer

We're looking to have two OHS servers at the top layer which we then want to load balance using a DNS Alias. Does anyone have any recommendations or useful reading materials on choosing between software and hardware load balancers? I've seen and maintained Hyperion implementations that successfully using both, but would like to understand the pros/cons of each approach.
Also, does anyone know of any recommendations from Oracle on which approach with Hyperion / configuration recommendations when using Load balancers? The EPM High Availability guide 126.96.36.199 doesn't say much about load balancers sitting above the OHS layer
