Hi, The other benefit is more prop tip to ground clearance.
Industry scuttlebutt claims slightly better climb rate but very little increase in cruise.
Major disadvantage is at overhaul time when you pay to have three blades overhauled instead of two.

Hi, Les. Welcome.

If the engine is stock:
Pro: Aesthetics. Less vibration. Less noise
Cons: Even heavier nose. Hard to remove and install bottom cowling. No aerodynamic improvement.

Best option: MT-propeller 2 blade.
