First review round: 25.0 weeks. Overall rating: 1 (bad). Outcome: Accepted.

All in all, I can't recommend it. The reviews were ok, but the editorial office was extremely unresponsive. After a request for some minor revisions that we carried out in less than 3 weeks, we were left without any information regarding our manuscript for almost a year. Meanwhile we sent plenty of emails, with no answer. However it resulted in an 'accept', it was a very disappointing experience.
