Bought these. Loved them. I actually wanted a pair of Volkl p40s, but noone in London seemed to have them in stock. I was quite glad actually, because every man and his dog seemed to have p40s in Switzerland. After some very British Apres-ski, I'm sure I'd never have found them again amongst the clutter. Anyway, Bandit xxs are very quick, nice high tips for the powder, carve nicely, good across the whole mountain. Edges (when sharp) make them corner like they're on rails. Good performance all round. I hear the X-Scream series and p40s are great, but if these are an option, they're definitely worth considering.
