Are there any drawbacks to fitting the cheaper solid flywheel option to my Skoda Octavia?

I have a 2007 Skoda Octavia 1.9 diesel estate with 82,000 miles on the clock and at the last MOT the garage said my DMF was showing signs of wear. There is a slight vibration on the clutch pedal. He told me I had two options when replacing it. I could either have a like-for-like replacement that would probably last me another 80,000 miles, or there is now an option to have a solid flywheel which is a lot cheaper and would last forever. Please can you tell me the pros and cons of taking the cheaper option?

The cheaper flywheel will cause more vibration into the cabin and greater strain on first and second gears.
