I use OpenDNS often (their servers are and There's no doubt they provide a great service; the biggest drawback is that even invalid domains will be answered for (a direction to OpenDNS's search site). This can be a pain when trying to troubleshoot, but it's generally not a problem.

As for privacy, I doubt you stand any more risk than using DNS servers provided by your ISP.

I agree that the service isn't bad. But it kills me when I mistype a fqdn for an ssh session or irc. Usually I catch that the address was resolved as a 208.something and realize what I did but it can be a pain in the ass.
