Awesome riding experience
Rating:
The Good
Hands down the best rear-suspension I've ridden. Bike feels composed and "glued" to the ground, offering unreal traction and yet is playful on command.
Effectively zero drivetrain maintenance
Huge gear range and able to instantly shift into them (except under pedaling load)
Lower cost of ownership over the life of the bike due to reduced maintenance/wear
Dialed geometry and fit
Light feel from the rear-end
Quiet
The Bad
Needs to be pushed hard to unlock it's full potential
Small area for water bottle
Learning the shifting takes a little time
Using the grip shift means a minor hand adjustment
Overall Review:

Love riding this machine! It has hands down the best suspension in a 160 bike I've ridden (tried many different designs).

You have to spend a little time getting used to the shifting, but once you do, you'll agree it's worth it.  Everytime a buddy has a drive-train issue, I'm reminded that used to be me.

Coming up on 1 year aboard my Taniwha and it just keeps getting better and better.
