I think it has been superb. A couple of dodgy interviews but on the whole, a very good service. I hope people are taking advantage of it though.
Edit: @ above, yeah NBC is apparently a complete shambles. Crap 'experts' and commentators, many commercials and subsequently a lot of stuff missed out, and lots just not shown even on the website player according to another forum I frequent.
They were all complaining that the opening ceremony was disjointed, then realised NBC cut out loads for commercial breaks, despite the fact that it was a prerecorded broadcast... just stop the tape...

I agree that the broad range of coverage is excellent, but some of the quality on some sports has been lacking. I've also noticed a lot of microphone issues when they switch from one person to another or when they go to an interview, even for the high profile athletic events.
The cycling coverage drives me insane, but I'm too used to eurosport coverage (I have been watching this when available) so I can't expect anything to that quality. I also agree that Sue Barker would have been better for primetime coverage rather than Lineker.
Otherwise, I think they've done a very good job. The commentary free channels are much appreciated too.

Digital channels excellent. Website and apps very good.
Highlights show terrible -- everything is like a montage. Show the actual races dammit!!
Online articles mediocre. They've improved but initially missed out major details, such as who won the goddamn medals.
I'm starting to dislike Gary Lineker. He's become cheeky and arrogant and frankly don't like his snide comments.
