I will def not be approaching developing color film anytime soon, but I was curious if developing at home makes a difference without compromising quality.

I would guess that 99% of us develop our B&W 4x5 at home, and there is no downside, especially if you are used to developing other formats. I have a darkroom, so I tray develop, which I find easy once you get a little experience (i.e. the first few times you may scratch a negative, but after that you are pretty much done with problems). Many others use a variety of different tanks, I'm sure they will chime in shortly!
