Pros: Price and Style!

For the money this seatpost post looks like its worth $50 more than the MRSP. I'm not a gram counter but i am a bean counter so this seat post worked out for me. Like i said it looks good in person to and on my bike.

Cons: Not as light as a carbon fiber seatpost but WHO CARES!

Recommendation: Yes, Race ON!

Pros: Holds the saddle well
Doesn't flex

Recommendation: Came on my Giant Trance X2 and I've had zero issues with it. The 1/2" rear offset is nice and helps keep the weight over the back tire when it comes to climbing hills, and helps keep me behind the bars when descending slopes. For an OEM part, it is quite nice.

Pros: Good price.
Decent weight.
Strong; I weigh 200 lbs and I haven't felt any flex and it hasn't broken.

Cons: The yellow safety sticker is a pain to remove.

Recommendation: I selected this when I built up my Giant Trance as it was a decent price for a brand with a solid reputation. It has given me zero issues.

Pros: All the same features of the higher end Deus without the fancy extra machining

Cons: none

Recommendation: A great seat post at a reasonable price. It works as well as the Deus, just it doesn't have the extra bling to it. Great post for those who want quality without paying too much.
