Rode iXY: Useless or Useful?

I was curious if anyone hear has tried the Rode iXY? In case you don't know what it is: R .
I haven't had much luck with portable recorders or iPhone recording apps but this seems to be of much higher quality. It would be nice to have to quickly record something musically related but the "word down at the local guitar store" is it will be a big game changer for live broadcast/interviews, etc.
You guys have been around this stuff longer than I have so I what are your thoughts on this interesting product from Rode?

PS- I'm not implying this will replace DPA and Schoeps for your stereo recording needs. But it would be nice if it recorded audio without clipping the entire recording or being inaudible.

Yeah I reviewed it. Not too bad tone, a bit brittle perhaps. The deal breaker is the noise. Way too high noise for acoustic use. Really too bad, I wanted to like it.
