Bushing Instead of Bearings?

I found over at thingiverse some printable mounts for self lubricating bushing, they have the advantage of being significantly quieter than the lm8u bearings at least if the video they made is to be believed. [www.youtube.com]

The idea is that you get 12 Self Lubricating Bearing Bushing 8mm x 10mm x 12mm and mount then in 3d printed casing that are the same size as the lm8u. They seem pretty cheap and just wondering if anyone has already tried it?

Heres the thingiverse part - [www.thingiverse.com]
and one source of the parts - [www.aliexpress.com]

Haven't used those, but am interested. You'd lose some weight with small bushings vs lm8u, even more if you designed a slimmer carrier around the bushings.
