Problems that persist even if you try flashing another ROM or restoring a backup. These problems are difficult (although not impossible) to fix, and a big headache.
TWRP officially supports our device, gets regular updates. Its fully working, and its recommended by almost all (if not all) our developers.
OP may want to revise the top post to make the above reasons more clear. Otherwise, this is a very good thread to have now that the 2.20 floodgates have been opened.
Simply no reason to use CWM. People only use it, because they have used it on other devices.
Just stay away from CWM. Use TWRP.

It will work most of the time. But when it doesn't, boy you are in for some "fun" times.
Just switch to TWRP. Its a great recovery, don't be averse to it, just because its different than what you used before. In this case, the more widely known choice (CWM) is not the best one, and can give you serious problems.
