I did, and I posted a review

At the end, the performance in very low light (where autofocus has not a chance to catch up) was a bit of a deception. I don't know if it comes from microprism or the make itself. Or me setting too high expectations.

I ordered the splitscreen with opti-brite from Katzeye for my K20D. (It's waiting for me at Chronopost) So I will be able to compare soon.

Hi ghelary and thanks for posting. I'm very interested in your opinion of the KatzEye screen compared to the F3-type from
Please do update your review or post here again soon.
I recently installed the eyepiece loupe and it helps, but I feel I'm still having focussing issues.

Thank you very much! Also, I am with Steven; I would be very interested in your comparison of this screen to the Katzeye screen. Please post here!

It looks like you bought the Nikon K3--if my understanding is correct, this is the one Katzeye uses as "inspiration" for its screen. Any comments?
