    “Great chain with only one flaw”

    The Good:

    Construction is solid, great value.

    The Bad:

    Quick-link issues

    Overall Review:

    Used this model chain for the entire time I owned my Trek Slash. It was a great chain that shifted perfectly with my sram groupo. It also lasted a very long time due to constantly making sure it was lubed. My only complaint is with the gold quick-link. I understand that Sram says to only use a quick-link once before replacing it, but even while following this guideline, I had a few explode on me resulting in a broken and sometimes completely lost chain. I love Sram products but their quick-links have let me down time and time again.

    “A slick fast chain that works well with other Sram components”

    The Good:

    Power-link, light weight, price, works very well with other Sram/Truvativ components

    The Bad:

    Some people complain they break, but I haven't noticed the problem

    Overall Review:

    I've noticed the Sram chains available in Europe are made in Portugal. These I've noticed are better than their similar Asian cousins, that are made in China. I've noticed that with a mostly Sram (rear derailleur and cassette) drive-train are really slick but that Shimano chains jump around a fair bit, so better to stick with the same manufacturer here as the rest of your drive-train. Power-link rocks and is easy to use and better than KMC missing links.
