x2 the later 700's are slightly more reliable stock, than the early 200-4r's but they are pretty even with the later 200's. and once they are modified the 200 actually has fewer problems. plus it has better overall gear ratios, and i believe it's lighter.
i've said before that the only real advantage to the 700 is that it's a direct swap for the 4l60E series which is a really good trans, especially the 4l65 and 4l70 models.(the 4LXX series also uses computer controls and as such can be programmed for exactly how you want it and you can install a true paddle shift system)
