USG Barrel Ceiling Suspension System

Has anyone used the USG (or similar) suspension system for barrel ceiling framing? I have a client that wants a barrel ceiling (done several before) and stumbled across their website. Seems sound but haven't been able to find any positve or negative comments about the system.

Thanks for any input!

A sheet rocker buddy of mine swears by them. However he is also known for using unconventional methods for getting things done. I personally will always stand by wood framed products. Being a framer its natural to stand up for what pays my bills.
