The only reasons for getting an omnibus collection are 1) it's a great deal cheaper that buying one at a time 2) you can't get certain editions without buying the group 3) you get a lot of extra material along with the group that you believe is worth the extra cost.

Same here. I only get an omnibus in ebook-format if it's way cheaper than the individual books, or if it contains stuff that can't be bought seperately. Then, before reading it, I split it up into its individual books.
