No there is no drawback in using the same wifi name for both bands, However, the devices which are closer to the router will work fine the devices far from the router may face connectivity issues once in a while as if your devices may not understand which band to connect to because the 2.4 GHz band gives you more strength than 5 GHz.

I have dealt with (other) IT Tech support occasionally for 30 years, this has been the best experience with IT Support. They (he) resolved every issue, including malicious spyware hacks. I am sold on these guys 100%. I am 100% Texas, and had no difficulty communicating with Austin. Recommend him highly! Won't ever go back to best buy support (geek squad, or any other support folks)
