I think Panini has a better idea on how to produce a chromium inspired card than Topps. They use a thicker coating than Topps, so the cards don't have that disgusting inch of bend to them with some corner twist added in the mix. Also, half of the cards don't have the standard Topps Chrome full card length scratch. It's easy to see that Topps throws out the same thing every year and some people are in awe of the different colored borders every year.
Topps Chrome is simple and appealing. Panini is way too busy.
Topps Chrome proves that sometimes, less is more.
