The only issue you may experience is if the OST file that is created gets very large (more than a few GB) it may get corrupt is the only issue you may have.  Normally it is a good idea to run in cached mode for laptop users who need access to email offline, otherwise it just makes a duplicate copy of your emails on your system.

Cached mode has caused so many problems for our organization. Since we are a school we import student contacts into Exchange. When we have to modify them, anyone with the "cached" GAL has issues sending emails until they download the updated. addressbook.

For example. I just practically rewrote the powershell we use to import them. Cleaning up a few other issues we had with student contacts but after doing that anyone with ECM turned on...doesn't see the addresses in their GAL unless they click the drop down menu and click "All Contacts". My fix to this problem and for all other problems related to address book is to turn off the ECM.

Pain in the butt if you ask me. So pros and cons...

Avoid using it if you can.
