Anyone used Redi Niche

Has anyone used Redi Niche premade shower niche? Has it been easy or difficult to use? I am building a shower with durock panels.

I say go for it!
I have built many from hand because of necessity, while sometimes using a prebuilt worked fine.
If a prebuilt works for you, I say go for it.
If you have some custom needs, then may be better to build yourself.
But different brands I have used in past were fine and a time saver.

I've never used one. Check this out for some reviews. Just look at the very bottom of the listing.

I've never used one---It seems to me that the flange would cause a bulge under the Durrock and make for a difficult tiling job. Also---waterproofing would be needed where the plastic pan meets the Durrock---

I build my own and waterproof them with Hydroban----
