is there any benefit to staying or good reason to try and stay Neutral?

Hmm no
Debugging is twice as hard as writing the code in the first place. Therefore, if you write the code as cleverly as possible, you are, by definition, not smart enough to debug it.

There is a popular rumor that they will add some "requires neutral" -gear at some point, but not much i known about that.
We can't know for sure if it will ever happen at all or not, and even if it does happen it may be a very long time until it happens.

It is pretty frustrating to be honest. At the moment I have two characters who are both pretty much as neutral as can be morality-wise, for rp reasons, and they are unlikely to stray far away from it.

The biggest downside: no relics.

I'll admit I haven't done any extensive research on the matter, but sofar all I've seen, aside from the matrix shards relics pretty much all relics you come across have a morality requirement. Pre-50 atleast.

and the majority of morality requirement are light/dark level 1 which is EASY to get AND, since you can turn 'dark corruption' off you could easily get dark/light lvl 1 doing a few black talon/esseles runs JUST to access those items and then continue with your neutral choies in missions...
Red or Blue... such a hard decision to make!

It would be cool if they added a Grey Jedi option at some point in the game. And just for the people out there that aren't experts on Star Wars...Grey Jedis are neutral...they are neither light side or dark side. And there for can use powers from both sides.

If you create a character that is balanced in their outlook, then the benefit of being neutral is you are choosing answers based on how you want to play your character and not in a manner to farm one more number (Light/Dark) for negligable advantage.

I wish there was a benefit. Recently, I found that my roleplay experience was affected, because the best weapons in-game have a Light or Dark requirement. My character, being somewhat neutral, had to make a few extra Light decisions that he otherwise would not have made, just to meet that Light 1 requirement.

The lack of neutral character support definitely takes a hit on a players roleplay experience. If Neutral gears were added, that would be great.

The only advantage to going neutral as of right now is that you will be able to use both types of "forbidden" gear. This is actually a good advantage as in my experience as it is more common to run a across a "forbidden to light 1 or higher" or "forbidden to dark 1 or higher" gear than something that actually requires Light 1 or Dark 1.

It is true that all of the "on use" effect relics require alignment, but there are relics you can get from collecting datacrons that you can equip as neutral.
