So I jumped on the platform bandwagon with my trance x4. The dmr v8 had pretty consistent reviews so I gave them a shot.
So far I'm not just pleased but impressed. I took the pedals apart upon delivery, regreased them and installed. The bearing adjustment is pretty basic and takes some trial and error to get right. I wouldn't even bother with the syringe, just pull them apart and do it right.
Otherwise, all good. I've already smashed a bunch of rocks and they still look good. The pins are very grippy but not over the top. I wouldn't mind them being just a little bigger overall to accommodate my 5.10 Impacts.
Otherwise, I'd call them a screaming deal for the quality you get.

nice finish, nice grip, good pedal for the money. I agree with other comment that using the injection port for lubricant is probably just OK and you are better off disassembling and doing it thoroughly.
Easy to install, I have big feet(size 13) and my feet felt very comfortable on these. Once set the grips on the pedal held tight and I felt confident enough to just ride... Still don't know why the manufacturer put the grease in the pedal, but that is the only negative so far...
