These things are great I am using them on my robot butler project http://letsmakerobots.com/node/1904 "Note I have not posted video or pics of this because I don't know how to change the position of the embedded video". The sensors work really great and and they return their value in a simple easy to use analog form which is great for the phidget sensor board I am using.
I just bought one of EZ0's, for my "heli-bot". I will be able to vouch for or against it's robustness after I have installed it, but it looks awesome.
