I tried them on my i3 clone (wanhao) and didn't like them because they did seem to allow a little play, though I didn't see any artifacts. Your rods also have to be perfectly parallel or they drag. I'd suggest splurging a bit on the misumi brand bearings... they cut my noise down a good bit and got rid of some small artifacts from the cheapo brand ones that came on the printer. I'm not sure exactly what printer you have, but oddly when I switched to longer bearings it actually ran quieter too.
