Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Vetrep Great stuff! Fast & Easy Timesaver!
I bought a box of 6-inch and a box of 8-inch screws to build some heavy-duty benches for the fire pit area I'm constructing--using 6" x 6" and 4" x 6" pressure-treated lumber. Using the Timberlok screws saved me A LOT of time and energy over my initial plan to use lag screws to attach the pieces together. Using lag screws, I'd have to pre-drill all the holes to depth and then ratchet them in. With the Timberlok screws, I just had to use the bit included with each box to screw them in (after countersinking for the screw heads). Despite the thickness and density of the pressure-treated wood, the Timberlok screws went in pretty easily. I used the 8-inch screws to attach the 4" x 6"s to the 6" x 6"s (a triangle of three at each end) and the 6-inch screws to attach the 4" x 6"s to each other (two at each end and two in the middle). Then I capped the tops of the benches with deck boards. I attached each of the 6" x 6" bases together with Heavy Duty Liquid Nail and two 10" galvanized spikes--although I could've easily used 8-inch Timberlok screws to make the connections. (I didn't happen on the Timberlok screws until the bases were already done.) I was able to assemble all four benches on a Sunday afternoon--and they are very solid and sturdy--and seriously heavy. Bench is four-feet wide; seat is one-foot deep and 20-inches high; base is two-feet deep.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Scorpion54 Excellent for building with pressure treated posts and heavy lumber
I used these to build a bench that needed to hold 300+ pounds. Using 4 x 4 pressure treated posts and 2 x 12 pressure treated lumber, I had the bench complete in less than 30 minutes. I was impressed with the ease at which I was able to install a 6 inch screw with no wood splitting whatsoever.
The last time I built something out of pressure treated posts, I assembled a rack to hold a half cord of firewood. I assembled it with 3/8" lag bolts and had to drill a tone of holes. It took me all day to build the thing. If I had these Timberlok screws at the time, I could have done the job in an hour.
These are a real time saver, and they make it really easy to get excellent results. I don't think these are pricey at all. Considering the alternative is using a lag bolt with nut and washers, and drilling holes, these are a bargain.

These screws have always worked well for me in the past. No issues using these as well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RogerA Great for framing/fencing/timbers
Timberlok fasteners are easier to use than lag bolts, look much better when heads are exposed, are easier to line up and tighten. And they cost less. Only negative I've seen is the size of the head and I fix that with a flat washer.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by bigmonkey bit provided to install screws was stripped
Screws did not go in with out pre drilling and the bit provided was stripped-round as a doughnut hole. Had to pre drill and use my own ratchet to put these in (package said "they zip right in")- took three times as long as it would have if the provided drill bit had worked. lesson learned- if i get a free bit with screws, make sure i have a backup bit that actually works. The screws were fine. the experience was a pain in the butt.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chev Nice screws holding 4x4 timbers nicely.
Used these to assemble a 10' by 10' above ground pond made out of 4x4 pt timbers. Wen't straight into the timbers like butter. Used with rebar to assist on holding everything together very nicely!
