I have never needed more than 20 minutes to get through HK immigration. I would imagine it would be no big deal to get through immigration and customs (with your bag) in an hour or so. So then that gives you plenty of time to recheck with TR or AirAsia.
No huge difference between the two in my limited experience - just go with whichever works best in terms of schedule/price. TR's pre-ordered meals seem to be more expensive than Air Asia (though this could've just been a one off). Will never forget how good the chicken curry I've had on AirAsia out of DPS is - best $4 in flight meal I'll ever have!
