I can't say that I think one taste "better" then the other, but I do think leaf and pellet hops of the same variety taste differently, and I also appreciate these other features.
That said, if I'm not going to recycle/reuse yeast, and I'm going to dryhop in the fermenter I still prefer pellets. But for the boil and dryhopping in the keg, I prefer leaf.
First Brew was thanksgiving 2011, I'm at 100 batches and counting (as of 10/27/2014), and ran out of room in my signature to list them all.
