Advantage: You can play Legacy Media and run Legacy Software.
Disadvantage: Modern Media and Software no longer uses the DVD or CD format. Many Desktop PC's and Laptops don't come with a DVD/RW drive, and aftermarket Desktop PC cases don't come with the 5.25" port for installing a DVD/CD/Blu-Ray drive. Using USB 3.0 and 3.1 drives are much faster and Thumbdrives can hold more information/ are bigger. DVD/RW drives die suddenly and are unreliable.
