Algae scrubber - anyone try it?

Has anyone tried building/using an algae scrubber such as this one?

DIY project using algae as export in SW - Aquarium Plants - Barr Report

Do they work, and are they hard to keep clean?

Here is another thread i started discussing/learning a bit more about the system. There are a bunch of good links on more info and general good information on there as well. Worth a look over.
