Pros and cons of your lathe

This has been great seeing what everyone has. Since I'm looking at upgrading to a more Heavy Duty lathe(I have a Oneway 1018) how about giving your own Pros and Cons of your lathe. Especially those with the Powermatics, Stubbys, Oneways, Vicmarcs and Robust. These are the ones that I've been looking at.I'm still several months from the actual purchase but it takes time to make the decision I turn bowls and would like to get into true hollow forms which I just can't do on my Oneway 1018. The kicker here is my shop is only 12x16 but I can dedicate another 12x16 building just for my lathe, wood and accessories. Turning on each of these isn't something I'll be able to do(some I can) but even then I know I won't spot all the inconveniences that may arise from use over time. So, here's a chance to really brag about your lathe and or talk about the problems you wished weren't there. Thanks and yes I continue to research the various archives.
