What do you think of Original Sin on Early Access?

I look forward to this game, but I've never gone for early access to a game.
Not that I wouldn't want to be a beta tester, I was a beta tester for Eschalon Book III and I liked it. But I took that like a part-time job, playing more than I would otherwise have done, making lengthy reports on a daily basis, including lists of grammar and spelling mistakes… I got a free copy of the game, but I believe that's the least you deserve if you are a committed beta tester.
I would do it again, but the Steam early access deal doesn't attract me. Some people in this thread have already picked up the game, but without really playing it and also without really beta testing it, only to get a taste. In the end, I don't think that's really useful to anyone, not the player and not the game maker.
I'm going to be conservative here and say I prefer the old system of everyone waiting for a big release date, bar a few beta testers who aren't seen or heard.
