Is this any good? Anybody have first hand experience to relate?

Good stuff.

Yes, my friend and I burned through a case and a half of that stuff this last summer, and it all ran fine through several m4 type rifles.  As I recall, it was pretty warm-(like good M193).
we were kind of dubious about it because some of the cardboard boxes looked really old, and some of the cases were slightly corroded, but no problems were found.  I think it would make pretty fair class ammo.

Malaysian M193 is some HOT stuff.  Good round, I got about 500 rounds of it squirreled away.

I shot a lot of Malaysian surplus M193 back in the 90's.  It was really good ammo.   I didn't know you could still get it...

No brand, just marked 5.56mm, country of origin, and a line of numbers-(lot, etc.)  This was some older Malay bought at a gun show last year, packed in 20 rnd cardboard boxes, cardboard case box.  Some water damage.––Cheap, but like I said, ran just fine.
Just a side note though, I don't ever run foreign mil surplus ammo through any of my "good" guns.  You can't allways trust it.

Its good stuff. I love the wood crates they came in. I still have a couple buried down stairs. Wish I could find more.

I used to have a ton of this ammo, but I shot it all off 2 years ago. Now I wish I had some
