the sound. if you like the resonator sound, it's an up. if you dont like that sound, it's a down.

they're a bit heavier if that makes a difference to you

they're supposed to be louder, although mine is a little quieter. possibly due to it being a much smaller body than my acoustic.

Resonator guitars tend to be heavier, and some can have high action for slide use, but it all depends on what your looking for.
