Any pros cons on the Beta Marine engines please?

I stopped at Admiralty Marine on Rosecrans and picked an oil filter for our Perkins 4-108. We started talking repowering. They gave me a quote for a Volvo and new tranny etc.
I know of a person who repowered the same boat as ours using a Beta engine.
I may be able to use my same Velvet drive tranny which we really like with a Beta also.
A dock mate has a 50 hp Beta and it is a breeze to bleed the fuel lines and change oil and he really like it.
Any pros cons on the Beta Marine engines?
Thanks,
Chip
