First review round: 5.1 weeks. Overall rating: 5 (excellent). Outcome: Rejected.

The journal handled our manuscript quckly and the reviewers did a fine job. We were rejected and the reasons seemed plausible. One of the comments of one of the reveiwers were unexpected and a bit hard to agree on, but in general they pointed out weaknesses that allowed us to improve the manuscript for another attempt at another journal. One negative aspect: in the guideline for authors there were a couple of inconsistencies that made the submmission process more confusing and time-consuming then it should be.
