Biggest difference to me is a broader temperature range that it operates in. You can go very cool - down to 60 - and it's good. You can be in the mid/high-60's and still be good. I'm good for rinse and reuse, although I stop after 4th use.
This wide temperature range allows me to make most ales all year long in our basement. Now the only beers I have to ferment upstairs during cold months are some Belgians.
Also, I find it a bit more aggressive in attenuation.
