I always recommend the mobi2mobi conversion because it seems simpler (to me) than saving to disk first and then manually copying the file to the Kindle (and possibly re-importing the altered file back into calibre). But by far... the "save to disk" option is the least intrusive on the original file's formatting.
The ONLY time you need to do a Mobi to Mobi conversion is when you change the cover image. If you change the metadata, both "Send to Device" and "Save to Disk" will write the book with the changed metadata.
