pre-drilled or not pre-drilled that is my question

i finally have enough for my tank .

my question is: what are the pros/cons of getting a pre-drilled aquarium over a normal aquarium?

I'm looking at the 110 gal, or maybe the 120 gal. it must be 48"

I'd go with the 120 over the 110, it has a much better foot print than the 110 and is much easier to light.

Drilled tank
All plumbing contained in the tank
Requires less to hang off the back
Typically quieter than a tank with a HOB overflow
Tank can be placed closer to the wall
Less chance of the tank overflowing due to overflow problems

Cost more
