I'm on a 4.3 rom called SR 4 Remix and its rock solid. All the 4.4 roms that I've seen so far are built on the OTA and from what I understand according to Krowley the developer of the SR 4 Remix is that they have had issues with building off the OTA and that he is waiting for Verizon to release the official 4.4 tar file to build his next update off of.
I made the mistake of trying the 4.4 leak and it borked my phone something bad to the point I had to Odin all the way back to 4.1.2 and start again. Lesson learned, 4.4 is not worth having an unstable phone, not at least till all the kinks are worked out. Plus honestly when I was running the leak I didn't notice anything different or impressive about it. I am however keeping an eye on the DN3 Ditto 4.4 rom, they have ported Note 3 features as well as the S5 theme and some apps. Once that one is built of the official tar I will probably give that a go.
As far as taking the official OTA on a stock phone, I did it on my wife's phone and she hasn't had any complaints or praise for that matter.
