Are mirror sites (one site with 2 different urls but identical content) completely frowned upon and if so whats the best solution to resolve the problem - stick with one and whack a 301 redirect on the other?

Cheers

If you have complete mirror sites then one will not be listed in search engines. Generally the oldest is listed, for instance if you have a .com and then set up a .co.uk to target the UK only listings, generally the .co.uk won't be listed.

Most people who want two domains with exactly the sme content will use a redirect of one form or another to save on the work of updating two sites.

The 301 permanent redirect is the safest redirect to use.
