Yeah, when i'm doing normal kind of mild-fun turns, the contis seems kind of lame, but the few times I've really pushed them, they do really well.

And for that they are reasonably quiet, stop well on wet stuff and handle decently on wet stuff. I haven't tried them in snow, but I'm sure they suck compared to snow tires, so who cares.
