A unit buffered stream is an otherwise buffered stream that is flushed after each operation. Neither is better, it depends on your needs: sending data in smaller, more frequent chunk will cause a performance hit, but in case of a crash some of the data may have reached the device that would otherwise be lost in the buffer.
