Obviously will look more streamlined and fitted - any disadvantages that anyone has experienced please? Thanks in anticipation for your advice.

had two - they work fine - and look good -I would would have one again - where as I wouldn't have an intergrated fridge/freezer again I think
only issue is if you move you can't take them with you - but guess you are not planning to move
intergrated dishwaster stofstg is one with a door on it so it looks like a cupboard basicall

Our integrated one is not disintegrated as the door has come off twice and I can't be arsed to get it put on again. Our integrated washing machine has always been disintegrated as after it was fitted we discovered it is impossible to put the door back on again.

Our integrated dishwasher seems to have a broken spring, so the door clunks down quite heavily when it is opened (was like this when we moved in). I think this may be something to do with the fact that a heavy wooden door is attached to it. So maybe not too suited for heavy wooden door kitchens...

Oh and also they don't work brilliantly with cabinets that have a plastic coating. We had this in our previous place and the plastic coating peeled away and cracked near the dishwasher hinges because of the opening and closing.

So I would say, think carefully about how well it will work with your choice of cabinet door.

That all said - I would still choose an integrated dishwasher as they look much better IMO. And possibly are quieter too?
