Oval- Good for pulley or Ascenders as will hang straight down
D -really strong as force Goes down spine
Pear/HMS -good for a itailian hitch belay as wont jam in corner. Also if you need Lots of space( eg clip in point on anchor for several people, or gear.)

Wire gates don't freeze closed as much in alpine environment.
Solid gate- More comfy, quality spring back.

I usually have mainly D's. I put prussicks on a pear so I have it should I ever drop my belay device. I keep oval attched to ascenders etc so they come with the gear they are useful for.
