I'm trying to use Process Builder and Flows to replace triggers where ever possible. Given this new functionality, where should I still be considering triggers as the best option?

I'm keen to use and advise people to use Process Builder where ever possible as I believe it is easier to maintain than a trigger. However I need advice on where a trigger should always be considered as option number one. Any thoughts or advice gratefully received.

Process builder is not bulkified yet, so when you think your process might be handling a large amount of records, you should probably turn to a trigger.
