First review round: 25.3 weeks. Overall rating: 4 (very good). Outcome: Rejected.

The editor did an exceptional job and summarized all four review reports very nicely for us. The reviews, for the most part, were also very helpful, suggesting theoretical as well as methodological imrovements that found their way into the eventually published version of this manuscript. One review, however, was outright offensive ("I have no idea how someone could stufy this in the first place") and contained little substance. Since this seems to be a reviewer characterstic rather than a journal characteristic, the overall experience was still good, albeit it took quite a while to get the reviews.
