pre-fab wall systems for basement room?

I'm planning to finish my 16' x 16' basement into a rec room. I am intruiged by some pre-fab wall systems.
Wahoo walls is one product. Does anyone have experience with these? Any others I'm missing?

I know it will be more expensive than normal framed walls but, much quicker to install.

Thx
Rob

I inquired into some of these many years ago and they were pricey, even just for the material.

They work ok for simple, open areas. but when you get into odd shapes and sizes where they have to be cut/modified then they can be a challenge to work with.

what I like is they can minimize wall thickness, since the insulation is built in. My room will not be that large and extra space would be nice.

The difference between that and a standard wall only be an inch or two. Add to that the difficulty of running electric in the thinner walls.
