Question Laminate Floors: Glued or Glueless?

I'm having trouble finding reliable information on the pros and cons of each. The advantage of glueless seems to be in reduced installation time; some manufacturers also provide longer warrantees for glueless floors compared with their glued counterparts. The glued floors tend to cost a bit less. Intuitively glued floors would seem to do better with moisture than glueless, but I've yet to find anything that says this is so (and the longer warrantee of glueless would seem to contradict this).

Can anyone help me better understand the pros and cons? I'm especially interested in durability and the ability to withstand moisture -- "the Achilles heel of laminate floors". TIA
