I was able to create an account in about 5 minutes and have them send me my confirmation email with a link to the marketplace. I was able to view plans in the marketplace, but admittedly I didn't spend much time on the website.
I know there are well advertised problems with the rollout, but tonight I didn't have any issues.
You must have hit the option to SKIP checking for subsidies and income verification because that has yet to come online. (They are claiming that will work in the next few days) There is also a big difference between viewing and actually signing up, the insurance companies are claiming the info they are receiving is garbage and will result in a massive number of applications being returned. Of course the sample size of people who got that far is so small who knows.
