Is there a single word to denote pros and cons? For example,

Here you can view the [pros and cons] of this product.

update: When reading the word, one should immediately understand that it's about the pros and cons and not features/specifications in general. Think about a block or section, with 2 lists, a pros list and cons list. It's that block or section I want to refer to.

What you're looking for is technically called a "hypernym" - that is, a word which represents a wider concept than the word you've started with. You're looking for a word that is a hypernym for both "pro" and "con". WordNet provides the ability to look up hypernyms for words, and it suggests arguments or statements.

You might also consider considerations, aspects, factors, or even circumstances though none of them quite convey what you want.

Overall, although no single word answer seems to beat the original phrase pros and cons, I think I like considerations the best:

Or simply:

  • Thanks, but that's not really what I was looking for. When reading the word, one should immediately understand that it's about the pros and cons and not features/specifications in general. – Jeffrey Roosendaal May 8 '14 at 13:25
