I use Bitcoin-Qt + Armory because I like to have paper backups of my wallets, and because I like to have the blockchain locally.

If I were to use a online wallet I would use blockchain.info because Andreas M. Antonopoulos works there.

blockchain.info is really good as your hot wallet

for medium term funds I'd use paper wallets or 1 time brain wallets with pass-phrases (1 on your desk, 1 local backup, 1 cloud backup)

for long term funds cold storage, there is some guides like here http://www.reddit.com/r/BitcoinWallet/comments/1p6y5c/secure_paper_wallet_tutorial/

Bitcoin-Qt and Armory. Also, Mycelium.

I like to run a full node for the network. I like to feel comfortable with my security. Also, I like convenience when dealing with small amounts.

If you aren't the sole controller of your private keys, you don't have any bitcoins.

Best backup is a paper backup I guess.

All hdd and usb drivers might fail Smiley paper might burn Tongue but what is more realistic? Smiley

Some kind of M of N scheme is probably the best. It protects against theft and destruction if done properly.

Perhaps right. But it might not work for all of us.

I use litecoin qt for my LTC, but I haven't used the bitcoin qt, I will probably end up using it for a portion of my holdings, but I am impatient with downloading the entire blockchain..

And you could be hit by a car tomorrow, or you might die in your sleep Cheesy If your paper wallet, stored in your desk, burns then your pc and whole house will probably go with it.
Only thing you can be sure of is a brainwallet. The question is, what if you have a stroke or something and forget?

BitcoinQT and Mycelium. BitcoinQT out of tradition and Mycelium because it handles well spending from paperwallets. Evangelizing Bitcoin by tipping people with paperwallets and not having a good way to redeem paperwallets other than Mycelium pretty much forces me to this. Hear blockchain.info would work, too.
