LOBS reside inside your database, and thus are included in your backup, securtity etc. Uploading will take some time. BFiles are pointers to objects outside your database, and will not be backed up with regular database backups. But on the other hand, are easier to read/write woth tools outside the database.

It all depends on your business requirements...
