My parents had them installed this spring. Happy so far, but obviously too soon to talk about winter ice.

They have a ice guard heater cable that you can use there for the gutters and the ice dam on the roof. The best gutter guard I have seen of late is like a flat plate cover that goes right to the edge of the gutter so leaves and stuff will go off it but right there is a drop down and the water goes down in the gutter. Home Depot and Lowes have them here.
