Low-mount disc mount

I am collecting parts for a 29'er mtb build. The dropouts I am thinking about using are Paragon's with low-mount disc brake mounts. Now, I know clearance can be an issue, but I know that either of the brakes I plan to use will fit. What I'm wondering though, is what is the advantage/disadvantage to this style of mount? I want to use them strictly because I think they make for a cleaner look of the completed bike, but other than that, is there any reason from a structural standpoint? Thanks!
