Default Is MLAA worth the hype?

Could anyone provide real world experience with using MLAA on anything? Like, is the blurry text it creates still mostly readable? Are there a lot of games it just doesn't work on it?

I've been an Nvidia guy for years now, but the increase in console ports and/or deferred rendering techniques leave a growing amount of games that either can't handle traditional AA or have that weird shimmering issue using MSAA so this is one thing that's intriguing me. Most of the online reviews don't go into much detail other than a couple screenshots.

Also, is there a dependable brand? All the brands I'm comfortable with in terms of warranty or service are Nvidia-exclusive (EVGA, Palit, etc.) so I don't know who to go with.
Your favourite game of last year was over-rated, generic and contained poor level design.
