Quality: 

Good looking club, easy to address the ball and has a solid, easy-swinging feel. Construction seems topnotch.

Pros: 

Keeps drives straighter and longer than any driver I've hit before. My typical slice at tee off is no longer in play. The ball travels and rolls further, too.

Cons: 

The club emits a very loud, very distinctive 'clanging' sound when striking the ball. The price is fairly steep, too, but if it helps my game it's worth it.

Summary: 

All of my test hits landed at about the 175 to 200 yd range - even serious mishits still travelled straighter and rolled further than any driver I've hit before. After about 5 hits, I took a look at the club head and noticed that the pro shop had stuck a white sticker on the club face (so I could see if I hit the ball on the club's sweet spot). All 5 hits were outside the sweet spot, towards the heel of the club (longer shaft than what I'm accustomed to?). I adjusted my address and hit agian - I knew I hit closer to the sweet spot because the ball rocketed off the club and rolled into the driving range net 250 yds away. I was hooked.
