Have people used Scrivener to write and can comment on how you liked or disliked it?

I am looking for a tool where I can:

1. Create a basic outline of the sections I want in the book.
2. Write the text of the sections - in relatively random order - and then combine and organize them together.
3. Create a PDF output of the final book.

From what I can tell, Scrivener fits the bill pretty inexpensively. My initial writing will not be long books, of course.

And, yes, I am willing to have a bit of a learning curve (which seems to be what some reviews are saying) to get familiar with it.

Comments - pros and cons? I trust people here far more than the random reviews I have read so far! ð
