I certainly do see an improvement in less of that shallow, content farm, database spam junk. Google definitely was being gamed by it, and they made their move. I'd say it is a mixed bag overall - but I don't think all the negatives I see in the SERPs can be blamed on Panda.
The negatives seem to be coming from borderline irrelevant results on the mid- to long-tail queries. I'm not sure that Panda is to blame here, as I said. There's a lot more to the algorithm than the Panda module.
