I used to use Depositphotos myself. Since Stock came along I have not gone back to Depositphotos even once. The ability to add the images from a library in any of the supported Adobe Apps and then have the client proof it and only have to license the images and not have to go back and add them again is huge.
So the workflow if you use any of the Adobe CC programs regularly is the biggest factor for me.
We used iStock for a while, but their licensing terms are ridiculous. For example, the guy I work with got a 25 image per month subscription, and since I'm a video editor, I wanted to use some of these images myself for some projects. He didn't need them all. We bought 25, and wanted to use what we bought. Nope. They specifically said that I would need to get my own account - one account could not be used by more than one person, even if we each only needed a few images. They were SUPER obnoxious about this, and I immediately began using only Creative Commons 0 License images instead. It was very hard finding good images, but I was not going to give that company a single dollar more. Adobe has a reasonable license, and thus I will use them. I really hope someone from iStock reads this, since they lost years of subscription fees from us because of their customer service. It makes me happy that Adobe will soon be putting them out of business.
