Do you need one? No

Are they benneficial? Yes

Worth the money/trouble? Maybe


They are benneficial because they add extra water capacity to your aquarium thus abrupt changes in temp and salinity are harder to cause. It also clears out obstructions in your tank and allows you to place all your equipment below and out of sight. Finally you can set up a tiny refugium in one. However, theres a lot more to take into consideration when going with a sump system. It's not as easy as hanging on a HOB filter and plugging it in. In the end it comes down to a personal decision as to if you wanna hassle with it. As you can see they're beneficial in several ways, but by no means are they necessary.
