When I recently purchased an Acratech GV2 tripod head, I needed some compatible quick release plates. After reading the many positive reviews on Amazon for the Breakthrough Photography plates, I decided to give a couple of these very reasonably priced plates a try. I'm pleased that I did.
The first impression was excellent. The plates come in a heavy plastic ziplock bag with their logo on it and a soft cloth included that also has their logo on it. As an unintended comparison, I received a Desmond DPL-100 that decided to try as well since I have a couple of large heavy Canon L zoom lenses with tripod mounts. My previous Manfrotto 498RC4 head and its QR plates always struggled to hold the camera and larger lens without sagging and frequent movement. I thought this longer plate might work well in these cases.
When these plates arrived, the contrast was quickly evident. See the included photo of the plates with their packaging. The dented up box with the Desmond was courtesy of the USPS and the envelope Amazon shipped it in. The Desmond cost $1.98 more than the ones from Breakthrough.
My long career in aviation quality probably leads to me looking more closely at the details of parts. The fit and finish of the Breakthrough plate is top notch and can be described as an aircraft quality item. Of particular note are the red inserts mounted in machined recesses to prevent shifting of the camera/ lens. The Desmond has nothing on it to perform this function. That is probably the biggest difference between these plates. The Breakthrough plate is rock solid even though I only used my fingers with the attached D-ring on the plate screw. The screw also has a coin slot and can use an Allen wrench. The Desmond, minus any pad on top, does not handle a large heavy camera/ lens combo without some sliding despite using the Allen wrench to tighten the screw. With the Breakthrough plate, I don't feel the need to use a crazy amount of torque to attach the plate. Even the difference in the quality of the screws included with the two plates is very noticeable. The included photo of the bottom of the plates shows the different screws.
And finally, just one more shot to give some context to the discussion, this last photo shows one of the camera/ lens combos using the Breakthrough Photography quick release plate. Frankly, I'll probably buy a couple more of these. They are so compact and light weight I will frequently just leave a couple of them attached to lens mounts "permanently".
I almost never spend this kind of time doing a review, but hey, it's a great product and today is a holiday so I have a little time. I hope it helps someone.

I ordered two PU60 plates from Breakthrough Photography. I can say that I am extremely impressed with the quality of these plates. Each plate arrived in a heavy duty, clear, vinyl, resealable pouch. This pouch can be used to store the plate when not in use and should last a long time. When I examined the plate, I noticed that the quality is outstanding. The fit is perfect and the finish of the plate is very professional. I have a Benro Travel Angel II Tripod with a VE1 Head. Love the Tripod and the head, but the cost of the Benro PU60 plate was twice the cost of these plates. When comparing them side by side to the Benro plate, I actually think that these are higher quality! I highly recommend these plates from Breakthrough Photography.

Bought 3 of these 60mm plates for my Canon L series telephoto lens; fits the Canon lens tripod foot perfectly & the removable end plate snugs up on the rear of the lens tripod foot to keep it secure & prevent slippage when adjusting angles on my tripod's SSirui K-40X Ball Head. I also own several [[ASIN:B00ZH2PFTM Peak Design Black Slide Camera Strap SL-2 &Peak Design Clutch CL-2 Quick-Attaching, Quick-Adjusting Black Hand Strap and these Breakthrough Photography plates with the strap slot will be compatible w/Peak Design's anchor links for all of their straps... PERFECT!
I also use Haoge Quick Release QR Clamp Adapter Convertor for Manfrotto RC2 System to Arca-Swiss Compatible for an inexpensive adaptor for Arca-Swiss style plate to Manfrotto RC2 System that's on some of my other tripods & monopods until I receive Kessler Kwik Release (Receiver Only), and SUNWAYFOTO DLC-60 Duo Screw Lever Combo Clamp 60mm Arca Swiss Compatible; I'll be slowly converting all of my Manfrotto RC2 plates to Arca-Swiss plates & have quick connect & release capability

This review is for the 60mm plate. Although the photo depicts it in silver, the plate that arrived is anodised black. A nice touch is the curved raised plate (removable) which enables your camera back to snuggle up nicely to the plate. The two stainless steel "stoppers" on the underside are a welcome improvement over the Sirui version and will (should!) prevent your camera slipping off the ball-head when making adjustments.

I am converting my QR system to the universal Arca-Swiss type. That includes the base plate on my Giotto Ball Head and Gimbal head. This QR plate met all my expectations for attaching my camera to these platforms.
