I read two drastically different feelings into your example sentences. The one with the ellipsis feels more spaced and thoughtful, the one without feels very precise or clinical. Neither is bad in my eyes, just very different, which with more context could be good or bad.
I don't think Poldora's against the use of ellipsises completely... ( ) But there's characters that use it at the end of each and every sentence, maybe watering down the experience somewhat?
