Not only do these funds re-allocate for you w/o your worry or concern but they also have decent yield - VG 2015 has a 3.05% yield that will be an income stream or buy more shares on a regular basis.
I have about 50% of my tax sheltered funds in 2015 - the rest in index funds, bond funds and some pharma stocks in 401Ks that I have not rolled over yet. I am looking forward to comparing how they fare against each other in the years to come.

I use one of Vanguards for my Roth and my wife's IRA. I choose one 10 years past my retirement date for a more aggressive mix due to my pensions that I count as cash.

I use a T. Rowe-Price 2020 for my Roth IRA, and a TRP 2030 for my Rollover IRA. Both for the same reason as Bimmerbill.......I wanted something a bit more aggressive. I ER'd last year at 50, and my pension is currently fully funding my lifestyle. The Target 2020 & 2030 are for additional funding down the road somewhere in my 60's or 70's. Since the money won't be tapped until then, a more aggressive mix (along with the inherent risk) was a good choice for me. Besides, I have other investments that can be tapped if I really need to before then. YMMV.
