Default Pantone users here?

Anyone here use pantone swatches? I was on their site today, and the discussion board was really trashing the newest set of swatches. (Mine are ancient, and should be replaced).

There are two main complaints. One is that they are now printed on a thinner stock, perhaps because the old ones held up a bit too long for the corporate beancounters at Pantone. The other is that the colors are now arranged chromatically, rather than by number. This is nice if you are trying to get someone to choose a shade of blue, but Hell if you need to find a certain number to match.

Does anyone here have any experience with these?
