Greg -- no, I haven't used them. I just attached the website to share the pricing. I've also heard that the old ones are extremely durable as well. I've slowly been acquiring equipment in hopes to have a little gym of my own and the plates you have at your gym are always on my mind. However, since I'm paying for everything, I have to scavenge for deals on the quality equipment. I hope to run across those plates some day.
