Summary on my OP
Negatives:-
It handles like shit.
I have no control of the malt base of beers that I maybe want to brew.
Reported...No documented evidence, that it might go off.
If I want to brew a different style of beer, eg stouts/porters/milds etc I would have to do a partial mash, which defeats the whole process in the first place

Positives:-
No mashing
No sparging
Cuts a brew day down to 90 mins

And forgot to mention, my two brews, that I have done using LME, have a turn over of 3 weeks

There is a reasonable selection of LME here, certainly for most beers I can think of...
