These work as well/better than others. It’s more about your dishwasher and upkeep. Cleaning out the food trap/item placement/overall DW design.

Personally I don't like them but it may be dishwasher dependant. My favourite is Cascade Platinum - the only tablets I have bought for years now.

As mentioned, different results may be seen with different machines. I personally have had great success with the Finish pucks. Cascade Platinum seems to leave spots on my glasses. As mentioned, could be a machine thing and I run a KitchenAid product. Nonetheless good price at Costco.

They do clean ,, I find it sometimes leaves some white stuff on the dishes if there is a flat surface, left over soap stuff. I just rinse it off.

I found the quantum , Finish balls , they dont' leave anything at all.

We found the same thing. The Finish Powerballs left residue on glasses (even tried using 2, given we have hard water), Cascade Platinum saved us from getting a new dishwasher. So if you have an old dishwasher, maybe up your game via better detergent...

So many reasons for spots. Food trap or old food being the biggest one. Water type. Jetdry can help some with spots

As all DW are different, try for yourself. I’ve never had issues with these Powerballs on my Bosch Ascentia 7 yr old washer.

FYI RFD search brings up the best deal at 110tabs for $10. This is still a great deal Thumbs Up Sign

EDIT: thinking about this, the box would be a no go for me as I don’t have enough space where I store these tabs under the sink. Can transfer to the old package, but still a worthy thought to have

Is this cheaper than the 'regular' green and yellow ones? Or the Kirkland brand?

No matter which detergent I use, I find residue will occur to some degree unless I use JetDry.
Although it's been awhile since I tried Cascade... maybe I'll give it another go.

Posted this before in a different discussion on Finish Powerballs, but these were my comments:

I have what some have described as an overzealous love for dishwashers. I used the Finish powerball tabs from Costco on my previous Kenmore dishwasher and they were fine but when I got a new Bosch dishwasher, I was left with a weird goop in the bottom of the dishwasher after the cycle that seemed to be larger if there were more fats/greases on the dishes. Some searching found others that had this issue and that it resolved when they went to quantum or cascade packs (any pack). So while Bosch actually recommends the finish powerball tabs, I have moved away from them and not had any gunk issues whatsoever since doing so. Have not tried the quantum tabs myself though. If the powerball tabs/finish tabs work for you, then great. If not, try the cascade packs. I've switched and am not going back.

Why is Costco selling all 3 Finish Powerball, so confusing: All-in-one, MAX-in-one, Quantum...
