What is/are the reason(s) to use it?

Pixel Dimming somehow is a necessity on large, solid parts. The larger the area being cured for any particular layer, the more of a runaway cure you will experience. That is why, the layer over cures despite all attempts to prevent it through adjusting cure times. But by enabling Pixel Dimming, you can fix it quite easily.
