Usability Testing and remote labs

What are some of the benefits of utilizing remote testing when conducting usability tests? The most obvious benefits are of course saving both time and cost since travel and lab rentals are not an issue. But other possible advantages include having a larger group of testing participants to choose from, as well as allowing usability test observers from multiple places to “attend”. Further, there is likely to be less no-shows, and additional test participants and replacements can be easier to obtain if needed.
