Cheap and easy to install as are most external BB cranksets. For the most part, they have aged well and seem stiff enough to get the job done for everyday normal riding. Replacement chainrings are pretty cheap and interchangable with other brands.
Not the lightest or strongest thing you'll find out there but what did you expect given the price?
If you aren't racing or doing FR/DH, these should get the job done as a cheap solution.
