Cam, for me the upside of cartridge bearings is I don't need to replace the hub (and wheel relace) if the bearing race gets pitted.  This is why I moved away from Shimano hubs 20+ years ago and have never looked back.  Admittedly my hamfistedness has decreased in those 20+ years but I don't see a reason to ditch my Hope hubs which are simple and are forward, backwards and sideways compatible.  It will be interesting to hear Shimanos comments on their use or cup / cone bearings.
