As far as i know rooting is like backing up your phone so it is safe and does not interfere with warranty ,I myself tried to root my phone but it is too hard It is better if you back your phone up on your laptop or pc i think Incase your phone starts acting up So all you have to do is reset your phone

Rooting is also reversible. Which is also simple to do. There'd be times when you will need to unroot your phone. Like when taking it in for repairs if you need to.

Although once you get used to a rooted android phone and discover all its benefits you'd probably never want to unroot it.

One can not do reverse procedure on device with just any H/W malfunction. Ie device with broken USB i-face or dead battery - You wont be able to unroot such devices - and that can lead you into problems when you try to realize your warranty.

That is in no way what rooting is. Rooting is gaining root access on your device so that you can change things that you don't normally have access to.
Some of the reasons for rooting are to remove service providers bloat , remove apps you'll never use and to install custom roms .

The biggest disadvantage is the loss of warranty. And the impulse to go further and further with experimenting with a rooted phone :P, like new ROMS, bootloader unlocking, new kernels, overclocking and the list goes on...
