Most of my problems stem from season 6-7. DS9 hit a high point in season 4-5 and then dropped into mediocrity for most of its latter years. Yes, I know I'm in the minority with that one, but there it is. Season 6-7 had some good episodes, but far too much disappointment for my liking.
I stopped watching around season five. I just didn't care about the war stories. Had the writing been better and the Dominion been more interesting I might have stuck the series out. Eventually I saw the remainder of the series, and I really like "In the Pale Moonlight," but otherwise my opinion remains unchanged.
