I actually like it and think it looks nice when the top is down.

I've also found it helps reduce the buffeting air to some degree, albeit very small.

Some do, some don't. It's a matter of preference.
You'll be breathing in the dust that collects in the rest of the cabin even if you use it. No one's done any meaningful studies on whether dust with a top up is drastically reduced with or without use of the tonneau cover that I'm aware of. Again, it's a matter of preference. It's your call to make.

Agreed but it is that much more time consuming and doesn't give you quick access to dropping or putting the top up because you actually have to get out of the car and fold the cover... and put it in the trunk. Not the best if you get caught in the rain... which seems to happen to me every single time I put my top down... I must have angered Zeus at some point in my life.
