spiral mixers, pros and cons

What are the pros and cons of spiral mixers ?

I have never used one, eventhough I have heard they are a little faster than planetary and they make a better finished dough, whatever that entails. Some bread makers swear by them.

Large ones are made to be used in large operations, though
Doyon makes a 30 pound flour capacity, 50 pound dough ball, spiral mixer that I understand has a # 12 hub on it for attachments.

Anybody with experience with spiral mixers, please comment.
