It depends on what you see as a downside. You see they require plenty of exercise, at least 40 min a day but I love that about them, I can run George for 10 miles then my husband will do the same and he will look at me afterwards as if to say "is that it?"
They are bright so they need plenty of mental stimulation such as training.
They need plenty of grooming, but again many people enjoy that about springers so don't see it as a downside.
It really depends on what you are looking for in a dog. If you have limited exposure to springers, try and befriend someone who has one, and spend time with them to get to know if it is a dog that will be right for you.
