I jumped on the KDE4 train a week ago and I must say that KDE4 is ready for 
daily use. I used KDE a quite long time some years ago but leave it for XFCE4 
because KDE3.x was slow. But KDE4 respond faster than XFCE4 and I like it that 
much that I installed a new Debian Sid system with only KDE4 (plus Gimp and 
its dependencies). Konqueror is a little buggy which make it quite useless on 
some sites, therefor I had Iceweasel installed to.

KDE4 work great for me and the only serious drawback can be if you need some 
of the applications that is not KDE4 ready yet. But I can live without them... 
I found a few more applications in the Kubuntu repository and some plasmoids 
at kde-looks.

KDE4 is definite a milestone in the Linux-world! It's great!
