First review round: 10.3 weeks. Overall rating: 2 (moderate). Outcome: Rejected.

After about a month, I emailed the journal several times about progress of the review. The editorial office was very responsive and polite, but they kept promising that the review would be finished the following week, until it was more than 10 weeks letter. It was very frustrating.
