I use their streaming quotes and like it a lot. They've had problems with the data feed and both times credited me the 25$ monthly fee, even though the problems only lasted a couple of days. As for executions between the spread, I've
had about 10-15% of my limit orders go off at a better price than I asked for, so it can happen. Since I never buy more than 1K shares, the extra cost doesn't matter, and you can actually get a helpful person on the phone if you call at a good time or are very patient. They've credited me a couple of times when I complained about something. But the best reason to use them is the Marketspeed software.

Edward, Aside from the glitches that DLJ was having back in March, I have been very happy with the streaming portfolios. DLJ did reimburse me for 2 months of faulty service as well. The free research, afterhours trading (a bit weak) and real time static and streaming portfolios makes it worth while for the most part.
