Yes, I have. It's easy. There are 3 tabs on either side of the top panel. Access them through the interior of the case to remove the panel. Then, just work the filter from the corners until it is loose, and pull it out gently. You could also just remove the plastic brace to remove it, but that's an unnecessary step.
That top filter definitely impedes airflow out of the case, at least if you are using the top fans as exhaust. My CPU temps dropped ~4*C when I removed it.
Here is what mine looked like when I pulled it out...
