Real relays don't have 1 volt drop across the contacts. Real relays are also much more likely to survive brief overloads or transients. A relay that needs a heat sink and is most likely to fail when you really need it is not my idea of an improvement. I may be a stick in the mud, but I'll take real air space for safety, thank you.
