What are the advantages/disadvantages of changing the SSH/SFTP port?

Hi Everybody,

I read a few articles regarding the advantages and disadvantages to change the default SSH/SFTP port 22, but it's not very clear for me.
I understood when you change the default port 22 by another, you avoid the casual port scanning on the net but then why for the security staff it's not a good idea to change it?
Sorry but somebody can explain me that clearly?

SSH / Telnet Software
