What Are The Benefits And Drawbacks Switching From Nvrs To VMS?

Hey guys need some assistance, I have been using NVR's with cameras from HIK and I have heard good things about using a VMS software like Milestone but what cameras are everyone using with these installs. Our customer base is apartments so pricing is a factor because competition is pretty stiff.

What are the benefits and drawbacks from switching to NVR's to VMS?

Thanks
