Tale o’the Tape
Personally, I prefer self-published or "lean published" books at low cost—the author retains more control over the content than in "open educational resources", which sometimes turn into committee-written mush. There is also a small reward for the author. Students are also more likely to read a book that they pay $5 for than one that is free on the web.
Disclaimer: I'm currently publishing a draft of my textbook as https://leanpub.com/applied_electronics_for_bioengineers though I give students in my class free coupons for it.
