i made about 3 extract batches before going all-grain.
noticeably better? not really. i've made some good beers and some bad beers. it seems like a simple process, but it's difficult to master the nuances. also, adding 3 hours to the brewday is a lot of work.
if you decide to make the jump, don't skimp on equipment. 10 gal mash tun and 15 gal boil kettle. anything less and its just not worth it. if you want my opinion, i'd screw around with extract a bit more.
efficiency, water, mash schedule, sparging, grain bill....
