Dissatisfaction with PLA-X and Silk PLA supposedly "Premium Filaments"

I recently purchased PLA-X and Silk PLA filaments from HK, to test against my normally purchased PLA materials. I have to say I am very, very disappointed in both of the materials listed above. One job failed to even start properly, thought I might have done something wrong, so started again. Next job started fine, for about 1 hour, then it just went to pot. I have quite a bit of experience with 3-D printing and regret that I wasted money and time on trying the two types of filament mentioned above. Buyer BeWare!!! Neither of the materials is acceptable in my opinion.

    What was the problem? Warping? Layer adhesion? bed adhesion? Jam?
    Please advise
