Been using them for 11 years now, both road and MTB. Love the lack of spring force and ease of getting in and out.
The only issues I've had are with really sticky mud - the kind that doesn't shed from tires or fall off a bike when you hit bumps. The kind where you may start the ride with a 25# bike but finish with a 60# bike. It sticks to the pedals and cleats just like to the bike and tires.
Also, if you lube liberally, and ride in a dry, sandy environment, you may have some trouble. Surprisingly, I fould that if I wiped the lube off, they worked just fine in the sand.
Regular mud, snow, ice, dirt, whatever... no problems.
