Yes I have, I can only see my network on the WiFi radar.
I am fortunate that I live in a free standing house, and my first immediate neighbor is perhaps ~80 feet or more from my study window, and well over 150 on the other side.
On occasion I may see their network, but its pretty low signal strength.
I have tried to set the channels to be far away from my neighbors network. I also set their router up when they were having IT issues. (I am the friendly neighborhood IT dude)
So there is no congestion. I have also used a mobile phone app by Netgear to also check the surrounding networks for congestion, this mirrors what I see in WiFi radar.

Unless you really need for your enviorment. Keeping as stock firmware all good to go for better fail safe measure. Third part firmware at te end of the day still build
around the fundermenttal of stock firware. Third parties firmware just Changing another perspective dimesnsion and work well if you really need it acccording to your requirement.

Merlin works alongside ASUS (but not for them).
Some of his work ends up in official stock releases.

Turning WPS button into a radio on/off toggle
Clicking on the MAC address of an unidentified client will do a lookup in the OUI database.
WakeOnLan web interface (with pre-configured targets)
Display active/tracked network connections
VPN Status page
DualWAN and Repeater mode (while it was still under development by Asus)
Basic OpenVPN (client and server) support
Configurable IPv6 firewall
Improved compatibility with 3TB+ and Advanced Format HDDs

In my opinion work along side with official do not meant will work better (which it supposed too). But it all depend how it work with your envoirement and other 3rd party device. Firmware will always solved existing problems with pool of user having the same issue. But it do sametime create another problems. So the firmware upgrade will always require to change and improve it. This process will never stop till the product end of service cycle.
