I have gone for the Lenco Tabs, Very easy to fit.
I have set my tabs up according to the instructions from Lenco here
however I do have mine set so when retracted they are slightly higher but only by about 5mm.
With regards to your third question the tabs come into their own when the engine is already fully trimmed in and you are heading into the rough stuff and you need the extra level of control to bring the nose right down. Trimming in the motor will only do so much.
The other time I use them is when I am carrying a full load of four passengers and again trying to keep the nose of the boat down for a more comfortable ride into the chop.
