Compression in Hive Jobs

With hive, when loading you data you can specify compression.  As I've read some of the whitepapers, I've noticed that they say MapR has builtin compression.  That begs the question: When converting to MapR to we then remove explicit compression in Hive jobs (as to not try to compress twice wasting cycles for little to no gain?) or is still there an advantage to hive compression?   Have any tests been done on this?

Thanks!
