Pros: -no infections -transparent
Cons: -don't chip it -use a blow off tube
Recommended? YesI have a two of these and while they are great for secondary fermentations I try not to use them for primaries since they will volcano yeast. Still, the yeast will sometimes stack up 1' in the air so it makes for a great photo.

Pros: Allows you to see if your product has clarified without exposing to air, lets you monitor trub levels, doesn't leech flavors as readily as plastics, can be made into nifty fish tanks
Cons: Heavy-ish, breakable, definitely gets slippery when sanitizing solution gets on the outside
Recommended? YesChicks dig the glass carboy. Showing off a plastic bucket is not nearly as mind blowing as being able to show the actual fermentation taking place, the trub settling out, the yeast flocs forming, the krausen on the top. It allows you to monitor your beer's progress more closely without exposing it to air, though obviously you've got to be careful about light exposure.
