Default Who uses conical fermenters?

Hi everyone. I was recently at my LHBS and found a nice, heavy plastic conical fermenter (7.5gal $200). After hearing all the advantages of a conical I want to buy one (and many, many other things). If you use one, would you buy it again or just stick with buckets? I just switched to kegging (best move ever!!) and I figure with a conical, it will really cut down more time with not having to clean 2 buckets, hoses, siphon and then racking etc. Seems like a win win to me but I don't know. Thanks.

I would absolutely do it all over again for all of the reasons you mention, plus it was an opportunity to scale up to 15 gallon batches.
