I've been using it for about 4-5 months now, and am very pleased. We were on NotifyLink as well and have had nothing but problems with it for the last year. Attachment support has been marginal at best, and we had to increase our polling time to more than 30mins with NL to get reliable service.
GW BES, while it still has our problems, is worth the risk in my opinion. Emails are tranferred instantly, while changes (read/deleted) are updated every 20 minutes. In effect, it basically turns my blackberry into another desktop client, mirroring calendar, tasks, memos and emails.
We've had a few problems, such as global address book lookups not working, a few SRP problems and some occasional crashes, but most of these should be fixed with SP1 coming out in the near future.
We are very pleased with the operation of BES over the alternative, and would definately recommend it to aspiring customers.
If you would like more info on it, feel free to PM me and I'll send you what I can.
