Anyone have any experience with these relays or any other Phoenix products? Good? Bad? Penny for your thoughts?

Hi Sparky,
I haven't used this particular product but others from phoenix contact.
What I can tell you is that phoenix contact is among the top PLC brands used in Germany, besides Siemens and Beckhoff.
What do you want to build? Did you have a look at the Siemens "LOGO!" small PLC? I find it really easy to program and you can add a text display with buttons.

Thanx for the info. Not building anything in particular at the moment. I like the modular design of it and replaceable relays. At the same time, if I have someone fork out the money for a product, I have to back it up and I have no working experience with the product or company
