I use this combination on a daily basis. I find the syntax highlighting is good, including the spellcheck inside string literals (I'm a clumsy typer with sausage fingers. Spell checking is good) The "undefined identifier" and "unused identifier" highlights in the newer version are good, as well. And the code completion is, so far, the best I've seen for Python.

And I find the pylint integration a bonus for unit testing/test driven development as I can run a suite of unit tests from a single keystroke.
