I use Aspell but it frustrates me because (a) It seems ignorant of many standard English words (for example, autocorrelation); (b) it often fails to recognize inverted-letter typos like "betetr" (the word "better" is NOT among the suggested corrections, but "tetra" and "bidet" are); and (c) it usually offers too many suggestions that finding the one that matches is a pain. To answer your question therefore, I don't think it's a better spell checker. However, it does recognize latex commands and makes latex files very clean to read. For this convenience I tolerate its inadequacies.
