Pros and Cons of Session state and View state in SharePoint webpart

Athar Raza Faridi asked:

Open original thread
Is there any specific harm or drawback if we use Session state in SharePoint 2010 ?

Actually we have a scenario in which we have to perceive the 100 rows (with seven column in each row) in a DataTable and perceive its values during the page refresh call that is being made on close of the SharePoint Modal Dialog box .

Actually we have to insert the rows to the datatable of parent page by opening a Modal Popup without submitting the data to the database .

Does storing the datatable with 100 rows in VIEWSTATE will be an alternate solution ,if Session state is not recommended ? Or we can go ahead with Session state ?
