Performance is great, with easy clipping and smooth, consistent action. BD makes a lot of other draws that aren't sold in packs and if you're set on buying the Diamond you may want to carefully compare your options. For example, the Hotwire draw (remember, don't get confused between the biner and the draw that have the same name) is the same as the QuickWire except that the bolt-clipping end has a Positron biner, which has the advantage of a keylock design for snag-free clipping and un-clipping. If you anticipate grabbing the draw a lot, stop sport climbing. Failing that, there's the much cheaper Freewire or the divorce-settlement-priced LiveWire. Choose your poison wisely.
