I believe the one best reason to use one of these valves (I use a Fumoto) is that once installed, there is never a need to use the threads in the pan again, thus reducing the possibility of someone over-torquing the plug and stripping those threads.

Of course, that won't prevent the kid at Jiffy Lube from pulling it out to drain your oil, but if you use one of those services, you get what you got.
