P22/Lanston Font Quality?

In looking at various digital revivals of Goudy typefaces, I came across the versions by P22/Lanston Type Company and was intrigued: When bought directly from the P22 website, the prices seem to be quite reasonable ($80-%120 for a full type family with good glyph coverage and a full range of OpenType features) and I'm strongly considering picking up a few evergreen classics like Goudy Oldstyle and Cloister. Still, before I spring for it, I was wondering if anyone has anything to say about the general construction of the fonts. The online samples certainly look fine, but I'm curious to know how well kerned they are and how well-constructed the outlines are compared to fonts by other makers.
