One significant advantage of Serials Solutions is that they will populate your PubMed LinkOuts for you. I don't think the other services do that, but I could be wrong.

Subject: REF: link resolvers & A-Z lists
From the responses that I received, the consensus seemed to be that it
is much easier to use a commercial link resolver but that they did
involve time to initially implement and maintain. The ones mentioned
were Ebsco's A-Z, Serials Solutions, and TDNet. A-Z may be cheaper than
Serials Solutions. Two libraries did use an in-house Lotus Notes
program that the IT department had set up. Another library gave me a
link to their site:
