I have not used them and I don't know anyone personally that has, but I've read nothing but positive things about them. I plan on putting them in the first time I have the rocker covers off...

I have them installed. Do they take away all the valvetrain noise?? No.
Do they take away the noise in the 2500-3500rpm range that has plagued nearly every twin cam since their inception??
Yes.

They do work to take away the portion of the noise that is caused by the rocker shafts.

Is the same thing as Rockout or is it a different approach to the same problem?

If the rocker arms have back and forth movement and witness marks, good idea to install them. Most are not loose, so expecting the "lockers" to remove other noises such as lifter, heavy valve springs/seat pressure, or TB plate noise will disappoint.

Same here, know several who have installed them with good success. It does take away that dreaded 2800-3200 noise you hear coming from your your fairing area. On bikes without fairing, no-one ever hears this noise.

i installed the rouckouts (which are similar to rocker locker) and they def quieted things down considerably. there still is a tiny bit of valvetrain noise but it's an engine. i'd say the valvetrain noise was reduced an easy 80% and to me was definitely worth it. you mileage may vary.

i installed rockouts on my cvo 110. while i didn't think that it was bad to start with, it was substantially quieter afterward. noise is reduced significantly. and in my case, not just in the 2800-3200 rpm range. definitely worth the $15

I understand the concept of reality, but find it too confining for a way of life.

Used 'em.
They help.
A set screw drilled/tapped into the support plate, locking the shaft, works also.
