You can save both types of representation with a name and activate it for modeling tasks or select it for creating drawings, presentations, and derived assemblies. So which one makes sense. If working in large assemblies LOD has the advantage. This allows you to suppress components to save memory the negative is when adding a component to your assembly it automatically gets added to all LOD you have created. View Representations takes over there allowing you to lock each representation created so when adding components they can be added to the master without affecting the others but has no memory saving option. In a perfect world LOD with ability to lock representation would be great.
Check out my video of how to do this.

Most of us get caught up in making very linear types of designs and everything is in nice neat rows and columns. HOW BORING ARE WE PEOPLE? Lets put some patterns into some parts that make people give us a “WOW!”
Inventor has the tools we need to make this today, we can put patterns onto a spline easily.
Check out the (2) quick videos on this funcionality.
I think it is so cool and just imagine the possibilties after you see it.
