According to Hamlet the advantage of death is the ability to end heartache..... to sleep. On the other hand, the disadvantage would be the inability to know what kind of dreams might come.... and never end.

To die, to sleep— No more—and by a sleep to say we end The heartache and the thousand natural shocks That flesh is heir to—’tis a consummation Devoutly to be wished! To die, to sleep. To sleep, perchance to dream—ay, there’s the rub, For in that sleep of death what dreams may come When we have shuffled off this mortal coil, Must give us pause. There’s the respect That makes calamity of so long life.
