    Not a collector thing actually. Just look closely at the defference between the screwback and the non-screwback and you will know that screwbacks are made of metal cases which are undoubtedly stronger than resin. Being as such, screwbacks provide tougher case for the module. This issue has been discussed in the forum so many times! You may dig those threads back and you will learn the pros and cons.
