I have an M&P and am very happy with it. Echoing some of the others, the stock trigger isn't the best, and I replaced it with a RRA match trigger. Much better since I did that. I have a good friend who has one as well, and he loves his too. I've put almost 2,000 rounds through mine, and never once had a failure of any sort. I've shot good ammo and cheap ammo; shot when it is hot and humid and cool and dry. It functions flawlessly. My personal opinion is that the rifle cannot be beat for a production rifle in the $800 - $900 range.
