Worth original price
Pros: Very well make and thick mickle plating that will keep its shine a very long time. Quality vitron O-rings that stand up to more than "hand tight" on everything I've tossed at them. They also look great.
Cons: The current price of them is the biggest con. I bought eight of them over half a year ago to go along with a few others I had. They were selling for $4.50 here at the egg back then. I came back to grab a dozen more, but with the new price, plus shipping it would be best to get the "gold standard" and stick with bitspower compression fittings. While these were great for their price, the are no longer worth it since you can get the best fittings for ajust a wee bit more at almost any site online.
Other Thoughts: While I love to use the egg when I can, this is one of those products that I will have to go else where with as their current price competes with premium offerings and these are not worth it at that price. If the go back down to $4.50 or offer free shipping then they will be well worth ordering again.

Grips the Tubing tight- No leaks
Pros: Standard sized fitting, fit my BFG Water Cooled GTX 260 and my Core i7 water Block from DD. No leaks first time installed.
Cons: Kind of large- had to mount this on the front side of the video card water block and place the plugs on the back because there wasnt enough clearance around the outside of this fitting. These things are kind of hard to crank into place firmly- I used a small wrench with a few plys of paper towels to get this tight, otherwise it's all finger tight and I didn't trust that.
Other Thoughts: The Tubing on the 1/2 ID 3/4 OD is stiffer and does not deform with high pressure pump intake- unlike the 1/2 ID 5/8 OD. I ended up replacing this with the 1/2 ID 3/4 OD fittings and using the thicker tubing for my system.
