Yes, hook and loop is just Velcro. You'll also see it called aplix. I have different preferences for different stages. Velcro is easier and quicker to adjust, making it great for the really little babies when you're doing diaper changes in the dark at night, and I also like it for squirmy babies because you can slap it on really quickly. Snaps, however, tend to hold up better and are harder for babies to remove. We have a mix of both and I don't really have a strong preference anymore because DD is usually pretty good about letting us change her. The Velcro (we have thirsties) look a little ratty after 2+ years of use but they still hold really well.
