First review round: 4.1 weeks. Overall rating: 4 (very good). Outcome: Accepted.

The review process was surprisingly smooth, with a quick turnaround time. However, upon resubmitting the paper with major revisions, two of the three reviewers recommended immediate publication. One of the reviewers was till unhappy with the manuscript and did not have any real concrete suggestions or comments to improve the manuscript. He/She wanted us to redo some experiments that had already been published -- which involved cell cultures of 21 days, and hence the delay in the second resubmission. Other than this issue, we were satisfied with the review process.
