I hate to say it. I mean claustrophobia is bad, the fact that they can be uncomfortable (even though 12A on CO ERJs at least is all right), but it would be wonderful to have the opportunity to get into F. I mean free drinks, bigger seat, better food, all of that.

The main things for me:
1. Inability to stand in the bathroom without jamming my knees into the edge of the toilet "platform" (best word I can think of)
2. Usually a lack of meal service compared to what would be found on a mainline flight, regardless of length (i.e. an IAH-MSP flight on XJ had only drinks, while a mainline NW flight at the same time would have snack boxes for sale)
3. Cramped window seats
4. Lack of airline magazine on some regional carriers
The things that don't bug me:
1. Small overhead bins (my backpack fits just fine)
2. Occasional lack of a jetbridge
3. Legroom in non-bulkhead seats
Things I actually prefer:
1. Closer to the window from an aisle seat (2x2 seating)
2. Most of them are quite new

As already mentioned by other A.netters:
Too little overhead storage space (recently I had to have my laptop bag plus a purse-size bag before and behind my feet for a 90 minutes - couldn´t move my feet a bit).
The lav´thing: I never bothered to use it on a CRJ/ERJ/Avro yet ...

I had a dinner served on china plates once flying BTS - MUC in C-Class (LH CRJ-100, no special seat-layout) ...

No F seats mean no free drinks
AAHHHH, but that's not always correct.
IIRC, I also saw F seats on a CRJ900 operating a HP-flight LAS - LGB in October 2005 - or was this in Feb 2004 on a HP CRJ900 TUS - LAS ?

Neither of the HP / YV CRJ-900 flights I've been on had F seats, but perhaps your flight had been recently transferred from another carrier? It seems strange however, because I was under the impression that HP Express was the first operator of these specific -900s.
