I have not ridden tubeless, but I have several friends that have.
On the road:
I've heard nothing but good things. I have a buddy who is an editor at VeloNews who got a set for product testing and he can't say enough good things about them. Whenever he meets a fellow roadie, the first thing he asks is "Do you ride tubeless?". He raves about how low a tire pressure he can run and, because of this, how much traction he gets during hard cornering.
Pretty much the same thing. I know a few local racers who live and die by their tubeless wheels/tires. The only real disadvantage seems to be the weight, which isn't that much all things considered.
