If a product has some 'benefits', it follows that is will have some drawbacks (possibly). I need to find a word that is not seen as a negative such as 'drawbacks' but it must not have a particularly negative meaning.

Currently the document that I have to rewrite has 'benefits' and 'disbenefits' as a title and this to me is not very good English.

Any help would be appreciated.

What is theopposite os the word wave like ocean wave
Do you mean peak and trough?

It's quite hard to talk about the opposite of a noun. A child may say the opposite of an ocean wave is a desert sand dune.
Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.
If that's the truth then is the opposite word of benefited detrimented?

will the changes proposed result in benefits or (opposite of benefits) to the system?
Teachers: We supply a list of EFL job vacancies
I would use "detriments" in that sentence.
'downside' does not sound has negative as 'drawbacks'
Is the document about lower flight paths by any chance?
