Saves time & effort
These valves work great.  The hard part is cutting a good hole in the carboy.  To make sure the valves don't leak, just pop out the valve barrel (the part with the handle), and coat it lightly with a food grade lubricant such as Lubri-Film, and reinsert it.  Make sure that it snaps in place.  Also, be careful in handling the carboy, because there is a weak spot on the valve body and you can crack it.  I would have given these 5 stars, if the valve body was a little more robust.

leaks even when it is closed
racked my Mothers Day Chocolate Stout today and had to re rack it into a BETTER BOTTLE...with the old style transfer spigot... this one was leaking out of the spigot even thought it was closed... and yes I had one crack on me too... do not "LIKE" the fact that it can be opened so easily... like an accident waiting to happen

No pumping
Got sick of pumping the beer into th bottling bucket. Bought four of these in spite of poor reviews. Haven't had any problems and much easier to transfer beer. I had more of a problem drilling the holes in the right position.

OK Valve, but brittle
I have 4 vintage carboys for 1.5 years without issue.  I've not had the leaks others have mentioned but have had one of these crack on me during storage/moving around.  Just be careful with it.  Also, when draining, be sure to position the valve so that no air enters the discharge stream - you might have to play with it a bit.

Some good ---some bad!
I now have 6 carboys with these valves.  4 seem to be working OK.  One leaks and one cracked at the thread joint and I almost lost 6 gallons of hard-won merlot.  Hopefully the replacement will be better.  If not, I'll try to figure a way to salvage the carboys and do a away with the valves.  Its a great idea but the valves are lacking in quality.
