We are in the midst of migrating our SP farm from one set of servers to another and from 2007 to 2010.  After the test migration I looked at my pages and apps prior to a visual upgrade and things looked really good, after the visual upgrade not so good.  What are the disadvantages of not doing the visual upgrade?

It's just a CSS thing (style sheets) so no harm in not visually upgrading. You can always tweak the V4 master/CSS files after visually upgrading to get things how you want them at a later date

Is there no functionality loss by not doing the visual upgrade?

No it's purely a skin. A look and feel.
