Clay vs plastic

I am surprised nobody has mentioned the obvious fundamental disadvantage of 
clay pots - their weight, requiring both robust physique and a robust 
greenhouse bench if more than a few are used..

I grow everything in plastic pots, and can't see any reason why clay could 
be better, but plants can be grown both poorly and well in either. 
Ultimately how a plant thrives is down to the cultivation regime.
