I was thinking about getting one and using it in conjunction with my IC.....and only for that final pesky 10-15 degrees.

I use the 128oz ice wand. I start with an ice bath then slowly penetrate the wort with my huge wand. I gently move it around clockwise and change directions intermittently. I usually come in 30-35 min. to 70o. This is the only technique I've used. When doing IPA's I use my wand to crush the hop leaf and release her oils. Everyone has been pleased with the final product. Just be carefull not to put your wand in if the wort is too hot or it will explode.

Seriously... I'm never getting an immersion chiller.

RIS... Full boil to 65o in 25min. Less than 20% of the wand melted with full ice bath... only 2.5 gallon boil mind you.

Here is a calculator to find how much ice you need to cool water to/from any temperatures.
