How good is Dens-Shield tile backer?

I have a question about dens-shield tile backer board. Does the fact that it contains gypsum mean that is is less water resistant in the long run as compared to a standard cement board such as wonderboard. I have heard that gypsum/green board will deteriorate over time as it comes into contact with water/moisture.Does anyone have an opinion on how Dens-shield rates compared with Durock or Wonderboard. Also, what is Hardibacker and is it any good?
