I have the option for buying a cheap dichroic filter ($40) for a Tungsten 2k. As it is considerably more expensive than CTB Filter Gels I'm wondering what the big advantage is.
I can only think of it being less hastle to fit, not making a flapping sound in wind and lasting longer. There must be a greater reason for justifying paying so much more than this? I'm hoping that it will allow more light through than regular ctb. Is this correct?

I have Dichroic Glass filters for my lights. I have used gels in the past and I don't notice a difference in the quality of the light between the gel and the Dichroic. The Dichroic might let a little more light through than the gels, but I haven't compared them in this manner. I like them for the reasons you listed. They are easy to use, hold up well, and keep the lighting kit looking neat.
