Once it's drawn, it's fine.  The trick is to give the bees no choice but the plastic.  If you mix plastic and wax, they will avoid the plastic like the plague.

I personally don't have any, but Micheal Bush has quite a bit and loves it.   The only complaints I have heard is that there is no bottom bar and the bees will build burr comb off the bottom.  I have never heard anyone having problems with the bees accepting it
