Using Typed Datasets - criteria?

What is the main advantage of using a typed dataset?  I am trying to model a bunch of data being inserted from several aspx pages and wondering if I should just have a basic class that holds it in memory or if I should use a typed dataset and allow the data adapter to do the update for me (mapped to a stored proc).

My leaning at this point is not to use the typed dataset; there won't be any manipulation of data on the client side, I am rather building a row to do an insert into a table.  There would be overhead associated with the dataset that I'm not convinced would be beneficial.  Hm....

Any criteria anyone can think of?

Thanks much,

David Seruyange
