? The tiff standard states that all compliant tiff readers should implement a functionality set. Both are in there, so you can chose I guess. I am not an expert though, and your question confuses me a bit... They are both just ways of representing the image data, and though there are many parameters, there is just one way to "understand" this image data. I don't know much about tiles though, as I have only every worked with strips but this is my take on it.

Readers which are designed only to handle strips will fail to read TIFF files which are constituted using tiles.
