Depends a bit on if you're going vanilla, Dawnguard, or modded. In vanilla the biggest con is probably that if you get to stage 4 (i.e. don't drink anyone's blood for whatever it is, 3 or 4 days, I think) and wander into a town, you will be attacked on sight. Dawnguard removes that (which is possibly a shame in some ways). The next biggest (IMO, and I think this is the case in Dawnguard/most mods as well) is that if you go out during the day without regen/fortify enchanted equipment, your health, magicka and stamina will both be reduced and won't regenerate while you're outdoors.

Pros include some handy extra spells and abilities. If you use the Better Vampires mod, there are lots more pros (and yet IMO it does a good job of not making you OP) and it's also customiseable so you can reverse the progression, meaning your powers will be strongest when you've just fed, you can also gain levels (which improves your abilities, spell strength etc) by feeding numerous times.

There's a real good vampire mod on nexus. Better vampires? I can't remember, but it adds a ton of cool stuff.

Yeah, pretty sure it's Better Vampires.

Cons - Twilight, 'nuff said.

Pros - nothing - Twilight ruined vampires.
Never read Twilight. Vampires remain unsullied in my book.

OP, if you do go the vampire route, be sure to use the Better Vampires mod mentioned above. It is magnificent.

Tricky to install. Read everything. Closely. Load order is key.
