First review round: 6.7 weeks. Overall rating: 2 (moderate). Outcome: Rejected.

The reviewers did not appear to be experts on the topic. The comments were not at all harsh, but showed lack of knowledge of both the state of the art and the terminology used in the field. I also did not really appreciate the suggestion to revise the manuscript and send it to their much more expensive "sister" journal.
