Article that shows how you can store 2D data in a 1D array using row-major order and convert locations between the two.

So what kind of drawbacks are there to using this approach?

Replied twice to your comment now and they keep disappearing. Trying one last time by adding a new comment then giving up.

To quickly sum up what I said earlier (twice!) - I don't believe there are any drawbacks, bar a tiny amount of overhead due to having a class now rather than a basic array, plus the calculations to and from 2D space. But certainly I don't have any issues at all with it for what I'm using it for.
