New "uncloggable" gutters

Has anyone tried the new type of gutters that are completely covered except for a small slot underneath the trailing edge? Purspose is to have the water go into the slot and the debris to fall off the edge. Do they work? I'm building a house in the woods so have the opportunity to install them to start with but since they are more costly, I want to make sure they work ok. I'm used to cleaning out gutters twice a year anyway. I think the name of them are k-guard or permaflow. Thanks.

Yes, they work pretty good. It might be worth it if you live in a very leafy area like the woods.

We also are interested in these new gutters. I am not sure if they are a gimick. Do they handle the volume of water the old ones do? What about "helicopters" from the maple trees? They find there way into everything. Can you lift up this guard to clean it out if necessary?
