Real measurable benefit to ceramic bearings?

What's the different between ceramic and steel bearing ? On the bottom bracket, what do you feel when you change into ceramic bearing ? is it better then steel on BB7800 ?

Better power transfer ? if it's almost the same, not worth the money then ?? thanks a lot
