The 150 tuner chips are more recent than the 350's so they might be 
better. The ivtv-dev list would be a good place to search for that kind 
of info. On the other hand if your input is a satellite you're probably 
going to record from the svideo input so tuner is not so relevant.

The other consideration is 350s run a lot hotter than the other 
Hauppauge cards. IIRC the video display chips run at full blast whether 
you're using them or not.
