Way better than the MTB/SPD combo. Dunno why there aren't any Speedplay knockoffs--maybe they've got better lawyers.
There are no Speedplay knockoffs because Speedplay sues the bejesus out of anyone who's design is even close. Bebop survived but just.

The Nashbar Look stlyes are a great bargain and are made by Wellgo. If you look at Sampson pedals they are the same as the Nashbars at twice the price. Only thing about the Wellgo Lookalikes is that true Look Delta cleat do not really work very well with them. You may be able to clip in but may never get it out.
