Torres del Paine - "W" or Full Circuit

Hey trekkers, I am planning on visiting Patagonia next year for probably only 2 weeks. I'm looking for opinions on doing the "W" versus the full circuit. Is it worth the extra days to do the full circuit. If so, why? (Photos speak louder than words so a link to pics showing what I'd miss would be great.)

We did the W circuit in December 2006 and thought it was plenty. At that time the full circuit was closed due to landslides anyway, but we were very happy with the W and saw a lot of wonderful views. We did it a little more slowly than some do, with a mix of camping and refugios.

Oops. What I meant was December 2005. This is what we did: bus from Puerto Natales to the catamaran dock, catamaran to Grande Paine/Pehoe, then one night at Glacier Grey (camping because the refugio was full), one night at Refugio Grande Paine, one night camping at Italian Camp, one night at Refugio Cuernos, one night at Refugio Chileno, and out the next day after climbing up to see the Torres. You could do it faster than this, of course.
