just dropping my 2 cents...

1. For me netcdf4-python is much easier to install
2. netcdf4-python can read multiple files as if it was only one file
3. Very easy to deal with dates
4. I've never checked the benefits, but it can exploit cython if installed..

1. Can read many formats in addition to netcdf

As you can see I do not have much experience with pynio mainly because I
use netcdf4-python more ...
I would like to see if someone has compared their performance?
