That's a difficult one.
I haven't started using them, but I suspect I probably should on the basis that the more errors I can catch at compile time rather than run time means less errors I have to specifically test for or code to handle.

I can't help the feeling that there are too many C++ and VB fanboise trying to get the nastier bits of of their original code into the C# spec though: var without Linq, dynamic, and so on does kinda dumb down the language without adding any benefit in the real world.
