I'll jump into the fray and hazard an answer.
Threadless headsets are a little lighter and a little stiffer than the old threaded models. They are a bit more finicky to set up (my opinion), but easier to adjust thereafter. The biggest disadvantage to threadless systems is that they don't allow a stem to be raised and lowered as easily as a threaded headset.
