Default Glass or Plastic?

I see pictures on this site of people who have their beer in a glass primary and some who have it in the plastic bucket type primary. I have been storing mine in the plastic bucket type. Does one have an advantage over the other?

1. It is cheaper
2. Won't shatter like glass

I know you are new, but this is discussed AT LEAST once a week here. If you want the info click here;

We have a pretty decent search feature on here. It only took 5 seconds using the words glass v plastic to get all those results.
