I still use Corel Draw 3 for my network diagrams, so its not unheard
of to use something other than Visio.

The main benefit to Visio comes when -someone else- needs to make an
update to your network diagram. They probably have access to a copy of
Visio and enough knowledge about using it to make a minor tweak to
your diagram. The same can't be said of Autocad. Or Corel Draw.
