This is their overall ranking list for online brokers in general

Barron’s: “With its focus on speed, stability, service and price, Lightspeed has attracted frequent traders who want to customize their experience and choose how an order is routed...Given the tools, speed, and pricing model this is a good home for an active trader”

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

"Lightspeed Financial, Inc., a leading provider of low latency direct market access trading technology, risk management solutions, and brokerage services for retail traders and institutions, today announced that for the fourth consecutive year it earned a “Best for Frequent Traders” rating from Barron’s in its ‘2013 Best Online Brokers Survey’ featured in the March 11 issue. Lightspeed was also recognized as one of the lowest cost brokers for both frequent traders (ranked 3rd of 24 brokers) and occasional traders (ranked 4th of 24 brokers) for the second consecutive year."

That sounds pretty solid so I thought it would be interesting to hear what people's experiences are with them.

Anyone with these guys?

Whilst it's true that Lightspeed won "Best for Frequent traders" it's also true that a number of other brokers were awarded the same classification as you can see above.
