Good in theory, not so great in execution. Wires tend to ground alot if cables are moved.

I was excited about these when I got them but after using a dozen or so, I'm not so happy with them. I use these mainly for CCTV installations when I run Siamese coaxial and power cables in tandem. The main problems is how the power wires are secured the connector. It relies on you tightening down a mini-screw to keep the wires in place. The problems arise when you manipulate the connector after it is installed. For example, trying to squeeze it into a weatherproof electrical box (connector can be bulky and the wires get bent in an awkward fashion. This leads to the cables shorting out....alot. I think this might work well in instances where you are coming straight into the connector without any sharp turns on the cable and then the cables are not moved again.
When you are doing installations for other people and a short can mean your reputation, you probably want to go with good old fashioned pig-tailed connectors that are soldered and shrink-tubed together.
