Many companies are using V-model because we can find defects or bugs in early stages. Each and every phase has reviews and inspection. So that we can guess software process going in right path or not, all requirements covered or not, architect designed with all requirements or not like the way Project manager can inspect. So that can achieve higher success rate than water fall model. It is best suitable for medium size projects.

Disadvantages :
Less flexible.
If at all find any major defect at ending stages, to fixing that defect is difficult and expansive.
It is not suitable for long run projects and unclear requirements if having the project.
