I've just been reminded why I bought an overlocker. I'm in the middle of making a kimono style top and I thought I'd overlocked all the edges I needed to but then I found I needed to do another, rather long seam. I was using my sewing machine, overlocker had been cleaned and covered so I decided to use the sewing machine to 'overlock' said seam as it does do a decent stitch. I started and it took ages to do just a few inches, so I uncovered the overlocker and whizzed round the rest. Also a neatly finished seam, I think it will be a while before I use that stitch again on the machine, it's the overlocker for me. I know it can be used for other things too.

Oh yeah.  I wouldn't have the patience to use those stitches on a sewing machine.   :)
