not sure if basket will take the weight of many heavy armoured cables.

tends to be used more for data cables etc.
 
Possibly depends on the support c/c, tray can span a greater distance and is able to take more weight, one assumes it's been designed that way?

Tray being used for T&E lsoh install,no Swa’s.
Basket is for data,I think cables look far better in basket,tray not having the depth can look untidy.

Basket is so much easier to bend and manipulate, no need for manufacturers bends, cut ends can be filed down easier, bolt cutters and a file is all you need.
