Other than that they work really well.
I exclusively use PET bottles. I like using them. I use the Liter/Quart size. Quick & easy bottling. No bottle bombs. I haven't had one gusher yet either.
I only used them about 6 months. Nothing stays in them for more than three months so far. If I make some heavy stuff I will use glass.
Using PET I think its worth while to occasionally buy new caps. The seal will get fatigued, threads worn.
It does seem ghetto-like, but who cares? As long as it taste good. I don't drink from PET I always have a glass. Most of the time about 80% its just me and the neighbor drinking.
Now if I had a Quart PET in a brown paper bag swilling on the deck. That would be urban ghetto.
