Pros:
-Huge thing of tape
-Amazing quality
-Nicely packaged (well the tape itself I mean :P)
-Really thin (in a good way...like a chick :P)
-Really strong
-It's Kapton tape!

Cons:
-Um that I didn't have it when I built my computer :P
-Note: I'm not sure if its electrically conductive. I would use electrical tape just in case it can carry a slight charge.
Other:
This is kapton tape....it was originally made by Dupont (like teflon) but now its made generically by a lot of people. This tape is used in the inside of most laptops to hold down wires.
What kapton tape does:
-Dissipates heat (as in it takes a away heat)
-Used in airplane insulation
-Used in laptops
-Space Suits (woah time to go for the "X Prize on a Shoestring")
I used it for my wii modchips (wii-clip) after using electrical tape. This tape will turn anything into a heatsink so put a few layers on! Also it is a really nice gold (well pale yellow but close enough).
I also used it for an art project and burned it....try burning this baby it is really heat resistant but with a torch it will burn really cool. As I burned it just deformed but never completely disintegrated....its has the weird whitish color.
Bottomline:
If you are building anything or just want to be cool and brag about your amazing tape buy it!
*I got 3 sizes. I used the small sized one for some mod-chips*
