RainX is great until it starts to wear off and get patchy, at which point it actually makes visibility much worse than an untreated windscreen. If you're doing relatively high mileages (I was doing about 45K per year at the time) it's a struggle to keep up, especially as the windscreen has to be clean and dry before you can re-apply.
For people doing 'sensible' mileages, it might not be so much of a problem, but I got really hacked off with it, and not knowing the best way to remove it properly, just kept having to re-apply until I changed cars. I've never let RainX near one of my cars since then, though if I had a car with no back wiper, I'd use it on the rear window.
As for juddery wipers, they can often be fixed just by rubbing neat washing up liquid onto the rubbers and giving them a good wipe with a damp cloth.
