Checked vs. carry-on

At the airport.

Checked luggage:
Advantages:
Unencumbered while at gates, or on board plane
Can transport more items
Disadvantages:
Risk of airlines losing/misrouting/delaying luggage
Risk of airlines damaging luggage or its contents
Risk of theft

Carry-on:
Advantages:
Know where your possessions are at all times
Forced to pack lighter as a result of choosing to go all carry-on
Disadvantages:
Forced to pack lighter as a result of choosing to go all carry-on
If traveling alone, forced to stay with your bags at the gate or lug everything with you while you shop or go to the restroom

I don't know!

Poll #723616 Checked vs. carry-on

How do you fly?

I try to check all my bags, and bring a small carry-on aboard the plane
0(0.0%)
I don't check any bags unless forced to because I am over the carry-on limit
1(20.0%)
I regularly check some bags, and also bring a large-sized carry-on and personal item aboard the plane
4(80.0%)
Other [please explain]
0(0.0%)

For clarity:
"to check"  - To consign (luggage, for example) for shipment on a transportation vehicle: checked her bags and boarded the plane.

Thoughts?
