I think people switch over from Terminal to iTerm too quickly, without giving it a good shot. After using iTerm for a few years I switched back, since I realized it wasn't bringing me any value.

The main advantage that I get from iTerm is the Hotkey window, which allows me to open a terminal window that fills the top 40% of my screen by pressing CMD-`, and then hide it by pressing the same key. Because of it, I wind up being majorly more productive because I feel like it's easy to open up a terminal window instead of doing things the slow way in Finder.
