SharePoint: InfoPath vs ASPX

Personally, coming from a developer background I always have leaned towards using ASPX as it has provided me with the flexibility to create custom forms when using SharePoint. I think the main reason is the familiarity and there is no learning curve as it is based on something that becomes second nature. But over recent years I have moved away from coding and focussed more on what SharePoint can provide out of the box. InfoPath provides a good alternative for users of all types to create forms quickly and has some rich features which can be utilised. I have always looked at this subject with my ‘developer hat’ on but now as a Consultant/Architect I think the best solution should always win …

Here is a breakdown of the key features and benefits of using each:
