I can honestly say I have not seen many of these pedals last very long. The plates usually break, ok sure they give you extra plates, but those will break too. Almost everyone I know bought them because they were by far the best looking pedals on the market, but really none of them would buy again because they didn't last. If you really don't ride that hard, hardly every hit things, and love cool colors these would be great for you. Oh yeah and if you do decide to buy make sure to lock-tite the plate fastening screws BEFORE your first ride.
