No real benefits, AFAIK.

There's no speed benefits for using it, and no differences i've found so far. The only benefit is that you can use the express edition of msvc 2010 with the windows 7 x64 SDK to produce x64 versions of Blender for windows for free, but with some pitfalls (require recompilling some libraries) and the binary resulting is not 100% compatible with windows xp x64 (2008 was the last edition compatible with xp 64). You can't do that with the express 2008 edition without resoring to hacks. (that includes editing some registry values), and use and older SDK for windows 7.

That is.
