Pro Unique glyphs
This makes it easy to distinguish characters at small sizes.
Pro It has bold font even for the small 11px size
Pro Very good unicode support
It covers most common unicode characters so it's suitable for everyday terminal applications, not only coding.
Pro Raster font
Always crisp and sharp, highly legible at even 8 pt. Excellent for low to normal dpi screens.
Con Bitmap only
Certain Cairo-powered apps fail to render them (e.g. sublime text is only available on a few Linux distros).
Con Ships in only two sizes
It only ships in 11px and 14px formats, which might not feel as comfortable to people used to other font sizes.
