Clutch type LSD uses a manual transmission clutch to make sno-cones. A helical (I think that's what you meant by mechanical) type LSD uses planet gears to mimic the movement of the 9 planets in our solar system, which is useful for learning about astronomy. Viscous LSD's use highly viscous Criso oil make your car slide better around turns.
Stupid questions deserve stoopid answers.

Sounds like a valid question to me...

Only benefit to VLSD is low cost.

Don't know much about helical, but they probably require little maintenance.

Clutch type, in general, is probably most effective and are available in 1, 1.5, and 2 way. They are noisy.
