Update on Aug 2013:
I received a set of washers from Pinhead to use to prevent the locks from so easily being opened. With the washers I was unable to get the locks off with the Gator Grips. But I imagine that someone can still get these off with some effort. I live in Oakland and park my bike at the West Oakland Bart station. Needless to say, it is a high crime area. I will still lock both wheels with a u lock even with the pinhead locks and the new washers. I think that these will work well if you are in a low crime area or are leaving it locked up for a short period of time.
With that being said, quality appears well made. Parts have no gotten loose on me yet. The only complaint I have is that the seat post lock is somewhat large and ugly, but if you look at the design, I guess there's no other way to implement their locking system without it being so ugly. Better to have piece of mind and live with ugliness than worry about missing seats I guess.
All and all, it's a great insurance investment.
Everyone will tell you that there is no way to 100% prevent your bike from theft, especially in New York, but with these special nuts installed to replace the quick release/hex screws on most bikes, and with a decent u-lock/chain to secure your entire frame, most thieves will simply move on to easier pickings.
I personally think there would be more of a placebo affect with this system. To me, these are like locking a car (without alarm) to protect a sound system. It takes a thief less than 20 seconds to steal the system from a typical locked car (including prying open the door), whereas much less from an unlocked car. Pinhead is better because it may take another 10 seconds (which may be a deterrent) compared to another bicycle parked next to yours. IMO, U-lock is a still a better choice, because it will take another few seconds with the right tools.
I purchased the whole set as an additional deterrent, and won't be surprised to see a missing seat or wheel someday.

Different security design is good, but the materials for construction seem very inferior. These are definitely made overseas. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Mr
