My reasons:

* It looks nicer to me. I mean visually. I like eye candy.

* I am very used to KDE's GUI conventions, from button order and 
keyboard shortcuts, to configuration dialog semantics, context menus and 
the "start menu."

* Many of my favorite applications are written with Qt. As a result, 
they look and behave better in KDE (though in recent years this isn't 
much of a problem with Gtk-based desktops.)

* The Dolphin file manager. I like it very, very much.

* Extremely configurable keyboard shortcuts, like for suspending desktop 
compositing. Last time I checked, I couldn't see how to do that in Gnome.
