Aero Disc Covers. Anyone use them

As I begin my trek towards a TT beast I am gatherin gup some goodies and wondered about the usefulness of Aero Disc covers? Is there a benefit with out the cost of a true carbon disc wheel?
I see that they cost about $100. Any feedback is appreciated.

Aerodynamically, a full disc cover is the same improvement as a carbon disc wheel. If you're referring to Aerojackets, they're a fine product and I have two. Note, they can be a handful in a crosswind.

I have not seen any in person and have no brand preference but if you have info I'd take a look at any brand. The idea of a cover and functionality and cost is my question. Seems to be alot of bang for the buck.
Thanks
