Meter plugins vs DAW meters?

What do plugins like the old BF Essential Meter Bridge and more current VUMT show me that the regular mixer meters in Pro Tools don't or can't?

But if I right-click on a Pro Tools meter, I can choose VU, RMS or several different PPM types. So what's the value in meter plugins like those? Just easier to read?

I don't use protools but yea easier to read. Logic doesn't give those options for metering.

Pro Tools Meters are easier to read and more accurate than a VU Meter from PSP for example ...

We're talking PT 11 & up right? Because my meters in 10 appear pretty vanilla.

definitely .... it is easy to distort your levels in Pro Tools 10 since for example a -18dbfs sweet spot is at 30% of your meter whereas at 60% in Pro Tools 11 for example ....

It is a matter of taste after all and workflow above all .... what you get used to ...
