Planetary XY Motors

Does anyone have experience using motors with planetary gearboxes? Would they offer the same benefits against back rotation that a worm drive does?

Planetary gearboxes are generally able to be back driven, but with a high enough reduction ratio in practice they probably wouldn’t back-drive and might work well.
