As far as I can tell, with Vampires, you're forced to become a vampire(with DG, you have an option after you finish the questline).
Vampire have vampire buffs, like new items, coffin-beds, drain health buffs.
DG have upgradeable Crossbows.

I cant think of anything else

vampires get vampire lrod form and a bunch of items to boost it up. probably some followers?

Not sure if it is a bug but I love having the Vampire Lord rings cause they boost my stats outside the VL form as well.

If the Dawnguard can become Vampire Lords then doesnt that defeat the purpose of the vampire questline considdering that is their big thing?

only thing with the dawnguard becoming Vampire Lords is the fact they'll never be at 100% strength without the Vampire artifacts that I love so much.

Yeah, it does... You'd pretty much only join Vampires for the rings, amulets, magicka and RP purposes.
