I've been using for a little while now. It works pretty well. 

I'm not sure about setting the minimum TTL though. I think it's set by them 
and is quite short too. I know if I update my settings they're available 
pretty much straight away, which seems to imply that the ttl is very low so 
it won't be cached. Makes sense for dynamic DNS I guess. 

You'll have to look into it a bit to find out how configurable it is though.
