The only minus I've found with them is that they use allen screws to tighten the joints up. Damn fiddly at night at times but once they're set up you just point and click. Might be able to get something like "Bobs Knobs" to do away with the allen screws.

I have two identical 15mm eyepieces, I try to set the distances and angles up with one eyepiece under a bit of light earlier in the evening, then use the other eyepiece to find and rough center the moon etc then swap eyepieces with just a minimum of jiggling to align. If the weathers decent tonight I'll try to take a few images of the moon and saturn to give you some idea of what it can do.
