If you can turn the flash into a soft fill light, it's ok - but it's PITA, otherwise it sucks.
Now I hope I am still posting useful data for the OP, I think I have stolen this thread...
hat isn’t to say that it’s been written off – I will definitely get one

I own one and I'm a Nikon guy, so I know my point of view has that bias thing going on, but I know for sure that it's a great tool for the money. A slew of caveats apply: For example, I'm a sucker for the wireless flash control in the D90, but if that's not an important feature for you then the value is a little less.
I also know that the Canon T1i or T2i can also take excellent pictures for the money. These days it's getting difficult to go wrong.
You'll usually have to spend slightly more for Nikon gear than for comparable Canon gear

Every time this comes up I feel compelled to observe: There's no "comparable gear" in the Canikon world. The two companies play the leapfrog game, never quite pitting models against one another in price or features. 'Course, this offset diminishes with older/used/refurbed gear as prices start to drop; and there's no question that Canon's cameras also kick some ass. Heck, every once and again I find myself shooting my buddy's original Digital Rebel and enjoy the experience, even with the different ergonomics.
While this is true for bodies, the same can't be said for lenses.

If you are in Denmark anytime soon as your profile suggests, snap some shots for me I've got family over there and would love to see how the country looks since last I visited (1997 IIRC)
