They tend to use low quality metals, far too many proprietary parts and have very poor initial build quality (internal construction is always very off on every ARES I've worked on)
Their guns are nice looking and try to be very innovative... but they still fall short in quality and reliability.
+1 damnit, the use of proprietary parts that are made of inferior materials and often poorly engineered has made me lose ALL faith in them. The quality of their design engineering is also in question, as I've seen some pretty incredibly retarded innovations that either started out as, or ended up becoming, demon issues in the gun.
It's also worth noting I passionately hate STAR airsoft which is more or less the same company.
Neither brand could PAY ME to consistently use any of their airsoft guns.
