recessed cans vs standard fixture

Are there any advantages/disadvantages between the two in a suspended ceiling application? I have standard fixtures laying around I could use, but I'm guessing I would need some sort of special extended box to use with the ceiling.
Appreciate any thoughts.

There are "T-bar brackets" for use with suspended ceilings that clip to the grid and you mount an octagon box to for use with fixtures. I'm not sure if the big box stores carry them, but any electrical supply house will have them.
