spring clip wire connectors

I was in my favorite elect. supply today and the counterman gave me a box of wire connectors to try. They are designed to connect two, three, or four 12 or 14 ga. wires. Inside are spring clips which hold the wire when pushed in the holes on the end of the connector. They take up less room than a wirenut and are quicker to install however they work on the same principal as the backstab recpts. of which I have replaced many. These are new to me and I just wondered if anyone had had any problems with them.

Hi scrap,I have seen these in trade mags & in some new fixtures I've installed but have'nt use them alone.I would hope they are better engineered than the backstabs on residential grade devices.
