Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Coming in with the long term 5 year review. These are quickdraws. They're cheap and functional. The biners are a bit heavy, they have a clunky nose shape, and they snag pretty easily with a large prominent hook. The dogbones are thick and heavy and durable and nylon. Good or bad depending on your needs.
The downside is after 5 years the gate has lost its tension so the action is a bit sticky and slow, not snappy like you want it. On the worst offenders if you slowly let the gate close it won't close completely. I'm going to be replacing these biners, or more likely just relegating them to the bottom of the bin to get pulled out when you need every last quickdraw for a long climb or group trip.
In the end, they were great when I was a broke college student, but if you can afford to purchase a bit nicer draw I'd recommend it. My positron/posiwire draws of the same era are still pretty snappy. (Though their dyneema dogbones are probably nearly due for replacement, unlike they nylon used here)
