The real disadvantage with comodo is that it is a chained root certificate. 
As such, its transparency in browsers is do to its being chained off of the 
Baltimore Technologies root.  Since Baltimore has toyed with the idea of
pulling their cross certification service in the past, you may have to get and
install another vendor's certificate.  Its just something to be aware of.
