I personally used these for a two month journey through Central Asia that at one point involved two weeks without bottled water (during trekking, traveling). I used these tablets on water I gathered from streams and occasionally from water gathered from wells that looked suspect (i.e., from the plumbing in people's homes). I drank water of various colors (brown, blue and clear), and I never got sick once, which I think proves the authenticity of these tablets (or that I am lucky).

I cannot comment on the taste of the water, because typically the taste of water was the last thing on my mind. If you are thirty, you will drink it. That said, I do not remember the tablets ever causing a strongly undesirable taste (when I used it on water from people's homes). The only time I noticed a pungent taste was when the water was noticeably foul looking, because it was the only source I could get. Ironically, the water I suspected most came from a crap hotel in China that accepted Pakistani rupees (no ATM in town). I am quite sure the taste was not a side-effect of the tablets.

A few notes:

I had a 2-L Camelback (technically Platypus) I stuck two tablets in and a 1.5 L plastic bottle (the disposable kind) that I stuck only one tablet in, since I figured the tablets had a safety factor. I probably filled the bottle 1.3-1.4 L's up.

I waited at least 4 hours before drinking after dropping the tablets in, and would alternate with my Platypus/bottle. In one instance I only waited 2 or 3 hours for the water in my Platypus (which had two tablets), but the water "looked fresher."

The tablets are highly portable. I stuck them in my mini-first aid kit.

They are significantly cheaper than other alternatives, and protect against virtually everything.

Boiling is always best. That said, sometimes boiling isn't an option. This is a good price for 30 tablets, but note that this requires 4 hours to kill cysts (and isn't 100 percent reliable then). So, pair with a straw filter.

Chlorine Dioxide is a "go to" water purification tablet for emergencies AND outdoor activities - like hiking. Yes, they take a little longer BUT they are the only purification tablet on the market that is effective against giardia and cryptosporidium - which is why FEMA and other government agencies buy them up so fast the market can't hardly keep up.

As a light weight alternative to packing around water purification pumps for backpacking - you can't beat it. Leaves no after taste and even improves clarity as the sediment seems to fall out of suspension in the water after the tablets are used. I haven't bought chlorine or iodine tablets since these came out on the market. Incase you are wondering "Chlorine Dioxide" does not use actual chlorine to purify the water... it uses a highly active form of oxygen.

My wife and I used these for water purification in the Ouachita Mountains and they worked great. The tablets are a little tough to get out of the individual packaging though and required quite a bit of effort to remove them. I would definitely recommend these for anyone though, we didn't get sick, what more can you ask?

I received mine literally in three days. Full 30 per package. Date of expire of 9/18 (it 5/13/15 right now), so three years or so. I'm guessing they will be OK for a bit after that without a problem.

Worked out well for me as part of a filter/chemical treatment process on a backpacking trip. It says 4 hours and that seems a little extreme but I had enough water containers to allow it to take that long so it was no big deal for me. I also had no desire to test it it really needed 4 hours or not given the potential for problems. I didn't notice any strong after taste from them either which was nice.

These tabs are not only good for purifying water but they can also disinfect wounds and kill germs. Safe on skin when used at directed ratio. I use these to fight thrush and White Line in horses and donkeys. Same thing as White Lightening but much easier and cheaper.

I've used these for water purification whole backpacking and have never had any trouble. I keep them in my home supplies in case I have to purify water after disaster. In reality, this is best used in combination with filtration. I would recommend waiting the amount of time given in the directions, then drinking the purified water through an activated charcoal filter to minimize the chlorine taste and remove chemical contaminants. That said, if you are only worried about bugs in the water, this should do the trick.
