For roughly the same video quality, you have about a third of the file size.

If I were able to fit 8 minuets of 640x480 30fps video on a 512MB memory card with motion jpg or Mpeg2, with MPeg4 you would be able to fit about 24 minuets worth on the same card.

The "three times" factor is a personal estimation. It may be right or it may be wrong.
