Solution 1

They is no such thing: they are different structures, meant for different purposes. Trying to find "the best" is like arguing if bicycles are better than delivery vans.

For some things, a DataTable is ideal - particularly if you are dealing with anything that is sourced from, or intended for a tabular data souse such as a database.
For others, a List is ideal as it is simpler, easier to work with and somewhat more flexible.

Not a case of "best" - just horses for courses.
