Pavers or Slabs?

Is there any advantage for constructing a patio with pavers rather than slabs? We like the look of the slabs for our new patio.

Does anyone out there have slabs? Are you satisfied with the results?

Thank you.

Not really other than the pavers are easier to handle but it takes that much longer to complete the project.

If you live in a part of the country that does not have deep freezing, slab would be fine. Slabs eventually heave and crack in cold climates unless installed over a full footing.
