Its not a great encoder so I would not recommend going out of your way to use it.

I know that these results are from 2008, and different (i.e. newer) versions of encoders can be expected to perform differently relative to each other, but they show that iTunes MP3 @ ~128 kbit/s VBR wasn't noticeably different from any of the other encoders at the 95% confidence level.Having said that, the reverse was also true i.e. LAME wasn't noticeably different either, so there's no good reason to swap from LAME to iTunes.
