First review round: 1.4 weeks. Overall rating: 3 (good). Outcome: Rejected.

The review process was quick, however two of the reviewers were tightly affiliated with each other and the third was from the same field, which we felt was strange since our work is at the interface of two independent topics. The rejection decision was mainly based on the reviewing editors view.
