@amsa5,
A lot of the disadvantages tend to be people either expecting robots to do something they currently cannot (such as make ethical decisions) or misinterpreting what a robot is (a refrigerator is not a robot, even though they are both electronically-based) or due to expense. This is not to say that robots are uniformly wonderful, but often the definition is simply unknown.

@amsa5,
Prior to robotics, people did all the manufacturing work and were paid well to do it. (Think auto manufacturing jobs in the 1950s vs today.)

@amsa5,
Placing too much trust in robotics systems might result in complacency on the part of the human owners.

@amsa5,
Anything that does twice as much work in half the time can also do trice as much damage if it fails (before someone can stop it).

@amsa5,
Asimov's 'Foundation' trilogy explored human dependency on robots under his 1st law of robotics.

@raprap,
Not "Foundation". It was his Robot series.

@parados,
Asimov's stories carried a common thread--the final Book of the Foundation series connected his future history all the way back to Doctor Susan Calvin and US Robots and Mechanical Men.
