It's pretty new to the market but there are some positive reviews of it on Autopia. I have one on the way so we'll see. Check out the Auto Scrub as well, looks equally impressive.

Another thing that turned me off of thier products .. I looked at the Touch Up Shine the recommend and they say this
Your car is dusty and no time to spare. You have two options. You can pull out your traditional water hose, bucket of soap and shop towels just to give your car a sloppy streaky wash or you can receive professional results in half the time with one easy step.
When you degrade something else to sell your own it stinks.
From all that I have heard it seems to be a great product. I for one will buy one as claying can be a PITA at times. Having to reknead constantly just makes my hands sore and tired. From several reviews already it has been shown that this towel is more efficient at picking up contaminants than clay. Plus, if you drop your $25 clay bar on the ground you have to throw it out, with this you just rinse it.
Taken from Autopia:
"I used it on a black maserati the other day that I followed up with menzerna powerfinish. "toweling" the car, my helper was done in only 30 minutes. All the other cars he has done, its been over an hour of claying (some worse than others).
I tried it out and it cleaned up the windows and the paint in a snap, better than claying! I then moved onto the trunk lid of the maserati and while it did slightly scuff the paint, it was nothing worse than a claybar, and just as easy to remove the instilled defects"
As far as band wagon jumpers and Autopia, every forum has them. IMO Autopia has the LEAST amount of these type of people. You want band wagoners, head over to Autogeekonline.
I actually ordered one of these to use on our trashed cars that will be polished afterwards, I'm still wondering how this will work on maintained dark colored cars that don't need polishing, will it marr the paint.

I got mine a few days ago and have used it on a handful of cars so far. Like most any clay there is a chance for marring the paint with this towel. IMO it is on the more aggressive side but works MUCH easier then any clay bar. The large surface area is probably the biggest plus. As a result it is a huge time saver over clay. I've been using it with Meg's Last Touch w/o issue. I think that after the first use or so it has softened some, we'll see how that carries on. All in all I much prefer it to clay.
Just to update this...I've used the towel on a dozen or so more vehicles. It has definitely softened from the initial use but not to the point that I would want to go straight to wax. I wouldn't go to straight from clay to wax either, ymmv. There are no appreciable signs of wear on the towel aside from the crease where I fold it. So so far a much better option to clay IMO. I'll try to remember to update again after a month or a few dozen more cars.

I understand the mfg are working on a 'milder' less abrasive version. I've found that if you use it on glass initially it helps to prime it.
The number of times a towel can be used would be dependent upon how much contamination has been removed previously.
IMO this will replace detailer's clay
