Powder dispenser?
 
What are the advantages to having a powder dispenser that couples with your digital scale?

I use a Lyman DPS3 and love it.
The advantage...
It automatically meters out the amount you want. If I am loading 40gr of powder it will meter out the next 40gr while I am seating the bullet, no waiting and the exact amount every time

I use powder measures for all of my reloading. I don't use a trickler because there is no need to weight individual charges. I use the scale to set the measure, then check a charge every 100 rounds.

I think the OP is asking about one of the powder dispenser/scale combos that run $200+.

I don't have one but I could see investing in one if I'm ever doing huge batches.

Right. And IME, they're a waste of money. A decent powder measure is far faster.
