They don't have the protections against phishing etc. that OpenDNS has (at least as far as I can tell, I've never seen anything to indicate it does) but otherwise works great.
Comodo Secure DNS may be better for you. Both are owned by Neustar and have near-identical speeds (at least according to this: http://www.grc.com/dns/benchmark.htm)
