In reply to:
the twistlock can only be operated when the safety gate is open preventing the accidental opening of the carabiner as well as twisting in the belay loop
What do you think, is it a good thing or a nuisance?

not much different than the DMM Belay Master, except for the twist lock.

Some folks hate these and some like them. I personally like my DMM. You're going to get thoughts all over the map on this, so really, it's up to you to decide if you like it.

BTW - I don't use the DMM biner because the gate keeps it from opening. I like it because it keeps the biner from crossloading.
