1) Losing data already on the tablet? (I spent a lot of time getting it set up to my ideal preferences)
2) Not receiving Google/Samsung firmware updates properly?
3) Any other side effects vs. a stock experience?
(My current need for rooting is to install Sixasis Controller to get my PS3 controller paired with my Nexus 10).
1) No, this doesn't do any wipe data / unlock bootloader, so no.
2) No, root doesn't make you not able to receive them. Just download root keeper, and once you wanna update the firmware, go into the app, press save su (it will backup the root, then you unroot your device with the app, update the firwmare, go into the app again, and you're rooted again). Updating the firmware without doing that will only unroot your device, nothing else.
