Total time is about the same for the extractor method - the benefits are:
- you don't have to get under the vehicle so can wear your best clothes to do it
- no risk of breaking the drain plug or forgetting to re-install it

Of course, if you have an N52 engine without a dipstick you don't have the option.

But done properly, I am sure I have read where measured tests (by car owners) show that it can remove all the oil.
