I installed several French Drains last year using the perf. pipe in the pic. I chose the SD Perf over corrugated for a couple reasons.... 1. The PVC downspout adapter looks better than black plastic. 2. Much more difficult to crush or tear. I have dug up a bunch of corrugated pipe on hardscape installs. The pipe is either crushed or you cut it with your shovel 98% of the time.

You only really need glue on the couplers and even then is optional. The pieces fit tight, and running with the "bells" down you are good to go for straight shots.

One other thing I considered was that dead leaves and debris will sometimes sneak through the gutter guards and drain cages and into your drain system... Clean out of corrugated is no bien.
