They feather turns better and are quicker edge to edge (ski edge) so they turn quicker. They have less leverage over the ski edge so they don't carve turns as well as a lifted binding. Other than that, they keep your boot attached to your ski about the exact same as a lifted binding.
...oh, and do a search, you can read pages and pages of arguments on this subject.
