I'm using the original OSD, and the only thing I don't like is the dimming that is needed to show white text on bright backgrounds. My dimming is not dark enough, which makes the text hard to see sometimes. I think the MAX7456 is using a black border around the outline of the characters.

The code for the original OSD is also quite messy and takes up a lot of space. It consists of a lot of "should I put a pixel here or not?". In some cases this is nice, as you can draw anything on the screen. But you don't have time or space to do more advanced things.
