I know two are towers and one isn’t, plus two are 3-ways and one isn’t.

It depends on what you're looking for. There isn't really a better, although the 3-ways are better than the 2-ways, at a significant price difference. That's not to say that the 2-ways are bad. Some have estimated a 5-10% difference, but the difference may be bigger for running them horizontal far off axis. Personally, I really prefer what the 3-ways do. Extended clean treble, super-clean and lifelike mids.
212HTR vs 212RT - the RTs play lower and are floor standing.
212RT vs 212T - The RTs are 3-way with the fancy coax.
If you need a horizontal center, with 212RTs, you'd use a 212HTR.
With 212Ts, you'd use a 212HT.
Lots of big fans around here for the 210RTs.
I haven't seen any impressions on the new 212RT and 212Ts, yet.
The 212RTs and 212Ts are a lot bigger than the 210RTs, if that is a concern for you.
