I recently tried this product, having used the mechanically fastened corner bead in the past. I found this much easier to use, with a better looking result. I had several runs which were over 10' and was able to match up the bead perfectly - something I could never do very well with the mechanically fastened bead. Fortunately I've always moistened paper tape before application which I now see in other reviews is the key to better results. I also add more water to the mud.
Pros: Performs Well, Easy to Install, Easy to Work With
Cons: sold by the piece without directions for use, cost can be a factor in large jobs

The person above rating it as a 1 didnt use it properly. You should mud the corners first. Moisten the bead with water... place it on the joint and use the taping knife to squeeze out mud... use that mud that you squeezed on the top of the joint... use a small framing square to square up the outdise corner bead. I finished an entire basement using this product and didnt have not one issue!

No, I do not recommend this product.
It seems like the paper is not adhered properly to the metal corner bead because small air bubbles pop out when you apply compound to it. And it is not an application problem because it is a line of uniform bubbles that occurs between the paper and the metal not the paper and the compound. I'm going to try to get my money back because you have to slice all of the bubbles out, a huge and time consuming job especially for something that is supposed to save me time.

I really liked using this bead, was faster then using paper, and gives you an chance to put outside layer of mud at the same time. Less involved then metal one, no screws/nails required, but same angle protection.
It fits very nicely into tapered end of dry wall.
Pros: Easy to Install, Straight, Reliable
