The only downsides to the KitchenAid K45SS Stand Mixer are that is is a bit heavy. It will be tough to move it around once you find a home for it.
Another minor flaw is that the dough tends to stick to the bowl which has you stopping the unit during mixing to scrape it off.
You are unable to attach a bigger bowl to it so the only bowl you can put on it needs to have a handle and be the same size.
Other than these minor downsides, it is a great functioning mixer.
