I have a steri-pen they are awesome but only work on clear water not with anything cloudy or muddy. Also the battery life is so so. If its just for you it should be fine but trying to purify for 4-5 guys drained the battery in a day and a half or so. I would say get a steri-pen carry some spare batteries and a bottle of the tablets just in case thats what I do and it works well for me. Some sort of drink flavoring either liquid or powdered is great when usuing chemical purification.
Also ensure you know and understand the diffrence between a filter and a purifier. Many filters don't remove viruses which can be transmitted in the water. If you only plan to use it in backcountry streams a filter is sufficent if you plan on a more WROL SHTF sorta thing you want a purifier as there is more of a risk of sewage contamination.
