Motivation: The overall process was really quick. First an initial review was performed to assess the suitability of the manuscript for PRX. This was positive, after which there was another round of reviews. However, there it turned out the paper was not "seminal" enough after all. The review reports were OK and the referees knowledgeable, however one of the referees did not read the manuscript carefully in full.

Motivation: The Physical Review series of journal has often undergone criticism for lengthy review processes which PRX was supposed to ostensibly mitigate. Unfortunately, given the time it takes for an internal review for this particular manuscript, I can hardly recommend PRX if timely response is one of your priorities.
