    I have an option to use a 12 or 24Vdc linear actuator, they both have the same output specifications, what advantages/disadvantages of using one instead of the other?

    The higher voltage supply may get the current into the coils faster. It can be an alternative to using a big R to decrease the L/R time constant.
