Recovery is more difficult.

Recovery of what?

Any type of problem when booting involving LVM.

If you mean restoring the LVM configuration, then perhaps, but that
too can be backed up.

Yes, it can, but that is extreme, if for any LVM problem I have to dump an image.

In everything in life there are +'s and -'s

Yes, but that is because you know how to manage it and solve its problems. Most of us do not.

I have seen posts of people with machines not booting, having an LVM related problem, and nobody coming for help. That is what scares me. I can solve many disk and filesystem problems on my own, but not if LVM is involved.
