I have one and it is an exceptional tool. You can use it out of the box but the blades will benefit from a bit of final honing. Practice using it a bit in some scrap to get the feel for it. Avoid taking just one long cut across the entire length of your board for the first few passes. Start near the end and take small strokes working your way back until you are taking full length strokes. That way the groove will guide the plane a little better and you avoid tearout. Also, the post on the depth stop is pretty slick and can move while working. I found mine benefited greatly from a slight roughing with sandpaper. No issues now…

Did you get the T&G conversion kit as well? I have and have played with a bit but have yet to use it in a project. It will have a wee bit more of a learning curve, but those that use it seem to really like it!
