If you have any music that wasn't purchased on iTunes, iTunes match will make it so that you can use the iCloud service to download it at will.
It basically adds the functionality that we currently have with music bought on iTunes to all music in your library regardless of source.

Remember that for songs that aren't in the online iTunes store library, you'll just have to upload them to have access to them.
I've already used the iCloud beta that's available for the public to re-download some songs, and if my whole library was available, I wouldn't need to maintain my backup HDD for my music, just my movies.

Looks like a very promising service, I wonder what happens to the match music if you let your subscription expire? 90% of my music was purchased in iTunes, however the remainder that I purchased via Amazon MP3 once updated to iTunes plus quality I wonder if you get to keep the track or if it disappears once your subscription ends.

I subscribed and it currently sucks. It will no longer suck when I can manage my iTunes Match library online. I can't stand having unknown artists, missing album covers, etc. It also failed to upload my SRV music. I'm a little OCD about my music library.
