I agree too - since you ask for benefits - here are some:
Sata support is better (both wider and more stable)
It has xfs built in
It has lvm2 support
I think the md/raid subsystem has improved
The VM subsystem is better
The scheduler has improved

I bought a sata disk so it was an easy decision for me :)
I find 2.6.4 pretty smooth and stable with ivtv - I hear quite a few 
stability/roughness issues with 2.4
