1. In datagrid you have to do lots of task for sorting, paging. In gridview sorting, paging is much easier and you can do with only 2-3 line of coding.

2. DataGrid control doesn't take full advantage of data source components. GridView fully support data source components.

DataGridView is the implementation of framework 2.0 onwards. It is the overcome of 1.1 drawback.
