Are they not just an internal PSU without an external socket? If you mean devices where the mains cable disappears into the unit directly, I'd prefer an external PSU (even though I'm with Elf on preference for IEC sockets).
The SY85 has a captive cable and while in normal operation it's no biggie, the pressure exerted on the cable by the grommet which clamps it is way too high (I've had to replace two cables over the years for this reason) and when I was a gigging musician it was a pain. Apart from being awkward, the number of times I stepped on the plug during setup/wrap-down was ridiculous!
