I've done it in 2011 and 2012 and no issues. I think you do save some time, especially that stretch through carson city with all the stoplights, but it's hard to compare. The main thing is that there's a lot less climbing that way and the roads are straighter. It's a good route if you're hauling a lot of stuff. If it's just a lightly packed car, then 395 is a beautiful drive up in the sierras.
