They are OK - I've got about 20 of the 5g servos and I've had one that didn't work properly and one that failed in the air but the others are fine. I trod on and broke some gears but was able to repair it with gears from the one that didn't work.

I've used them in a variety of small 3D planes, 40" and 52" zagnutz and a GWS spitfire.

I've only tried one 9g servo and there was a bit of slop in it - not enough to prevent me using it but more than you'd see in a higher quality servo. I've no idea if they all do that.

Basically I like them but wouldn't use them in anything really expensive or demanding.

I have ten of them (5g) and they are about two years old and still working fine.
