I have two without and one with. If you are using them as dividers or moving them around a lot, then the door is pretty useless. If it is a permanent set-up, like Kodi's "bed room", the door is very nice. It's easy to pick a puppy up out of the ex-pen, but it can get old when they are bigger, and you have to do it all the time.
As Tom said, I would DEFINITELY get one without a header on the gate. I use the get when I go in and out of the pen to change Kodi's bedding in his attached crate, sweep, clean his litter box, etc. If it had a header, I'd still have to step over the whole thing.
