I'll just echo some points that others have already said. The paint on these plates feel a bit soft and rubs off rather easily. The paint almost feel a bit tacky. They left colored streaks on my bar the first time I test fitted them. I feel I could have done a better job myself with some Rustoleum.
Also, one of the blue 1/2 pound plates didn't want to fit on my Pendlay bar. I had to knock off a chunk of paint and then it went on. A couple other plates were tight too. Tight enough that they would be frustrating to change between sets. I'll probably be sanding or grinding down the insides.
Otherwise, I really like these but for over $10 per pound the fit and finish should be much better.
*** Update 2/9/14 ***
After using these plates for a bit some of the initial issues I had seem to be better. The plates now slide on and off the bar much easier. Also, the paint and finish seem to be holding better than they were initially. I wonder if they make these plates to order and the paint just needed more time to cure?
With that being said, these are weights and I don't expect them to stay "pretty" forever. The actual weight of each is fairly accurate and they will do exactly what they are designed to do.
So, if you don't care about the appearance of these weights, they are probably one of the best values for fractional weights you will find, especially with free shipping. If you want something that will look perfect out of the box, then look elsewhere. You can find similarly priced fractional weights through other vendors but be prepared to spend an extra $20 or more on shipping.
They have seen consistent use in my outdoor (non-climate controlled) garage gym and have fared well. The paint has chipped on the plates but who wants pretty gym equipment? There is no rust, they slide on/off easy and weigh the same as they did when purchased — What else could I ask for in a set of weights?
I initially bought them for StrongLifts but they continue to see use in all of my progression programs. Great purchase!
However, in the end they're just weights, and it doesn't matter what they look like.
