Default Acrylic film capacitors

Has anyone tried the following acrylic film surface mount caps?

I found these at Newark, although Digikey has what looks like the same or very similar cap made by Panasonic:

You can get up to 1uF @ 16V in a 1210 package, and cost is reasonable. The datasheet claims "good" audio performance, so at least they were thinking about it.

Thanks for any info,

John

With a dissipation factor of 1.5%, I would guess these are slightly worse than polyester capacitors, which usually have DF specs like 1%.

[Polypropylene DF spec is usually about 0.1%]
