I started racking rather than dumping when I switched from a bucket to better bottles. I don't have steady hands or a big funnel, so it's the best way to get the wort through the neck of the bottle without ending up with half of it on the floor.
I do have an easier time keeping the trub in the pot, but that may just be another unsteady hand issue.
Racking is more equipment to clean, so that is a negative.
I am planning on adding a T connector in my racking hose to allow a little Venturi effect aeration.
So this isn't an endorsement necessarily, but racking has made my brew day easier.
