Forget about simple record and playback as well, unless you've got a special situation or a extremely simple product with limited use cases. It's an unmaintainable approach and a waste of your organization's budget. QTP's built-in checkpoints are also something I avoid because updating them (I think) is a pain and inflexible. I'd also recommend using a code framework and alternate execution method (i.e. keyword or data driven tests) that's appropriate to your application and environment.
From my experience, one thing QTP has over its competitors is out of the box ActiveX control recognition (imperfect, but most times satisfactory). I honestly think the .NET languages, Microsoft's UIAutomation framework and reflection API's have put the writing on the wall for commercial automation tools like QTP. Years ago you would have been hard-pressed selling management on the idea of building your own tool. Over time it's now become much easier and more effective to create your own, tailored more specifically to your product, providing both unit testing and larger-scale integration and system testing.
