Why would this be better than a regular overflow?

This is the page but the thing I'm talking about is in a link to "durso's standpipe". Any thoughts would be good.

Currently using the durso standpipe in my 125g planted, and the tank is almost silent.

It took me some time to adjust the small hole for the air to break the siphon, but once that was done, all I have say is that I can't understand why everyone doesn't use it.

I built it myself using the directions on his page and it has been running now for about 5 months with no problems.
