Has anyone had any experience with Henle's edition of Mendelssohn's complete piano works?

I haven't but I own the complete Lieder Ohne Worte and a few Mendelssohn pieces by Henle. They are as good as it gets: that classical Henle typography with big text, clean reading. You'll also find footnotes, reliable sources, alternative versions/prints of the same work sometimes, very interesting and work saving fingerings, highest quality paper... Much better in any sense than the Dover Breitkopf reprint (which I have the second volume). As far as there's not reason to assume the compete Henle edition is different to the separate ones, I think it's a most recommendable edition for Mendelssohn.
