Pros: Good for both primary and secondary fermenting. Also have tru flo for easy racking to secondary/bottling bucket. Easy to clean with hot water and oxy clean.
Cons: Not easy to pick up or move without causing solution to come out of valve
Recommended? YesGreat with the true flow valve. Easy to clean and rack to a secondary or bottling bucket. If buying with the true flow valve the tool to remove is a must in order to clean and install. Great product

Pros: Light weight. Looks more professional. Get to watch the fermentation!
Cons: Plastic. Feels less important than Glass.
Recommended? YesI like that completely filled, it is up to half the weight of a glass carboy. It is also much less dangerous if dropped. Other than that, it is a plastic carboy. What else can you say...

Pros: Lightweight, clear, cheap, durable, easy to clean.
Cons: 5 gallons of wort is pretty heavy. Leaning a full carboy to the side collapses the corner. Not critical but probably not a good idea to do this often.
Great product at a great price. I wanted glass but I couldn't justify the price.

Pros: - won't break - lightweight - not a bad price
Cons: - plastic can scratch
Recommended? YesI've exclusively used better bottles in my brewing (i have 3, looking to get more) and can't complain at all. The only problem i am worried with is scratching them on the inside, though i've found even with the grossest leftovers from months of fermenting, all you need is half a scoop of oxy soaked in to the brim and it'll take out all the nasties easily. Many people are worried about oxygen getting through, though that hasn't been a problem with me (at least i haven't noticed any problems) so i consider it a nonissue..
bottom line, i love that they are light, won't break, and will stand up to the test of time if you treat them right, and if you accidentally knock them off the counter.
