At the last Digital Meeting there was some misinformation about Smart Previews
First the only reason for Smart Previews is if your using a laptop and your image files are on an external drive which you do not expect to have connected all of the time. With Smart preview you can do much of the Develop Module with out the files. Some of the things you can't do include external editing such as Topaz or PS. Also you may not be able to export depending on what you want in the file
Secondly, you can make a Smart Preview from any file type not just RAW
I stopped using them because they were taking up a huge amount of space on my SSD drive (1 TB) and just carry the external with me now
