No, they are not terrible. I've put the entire weight of the bike on them to leverage the 950 out of the mud with no damage. Never broken any lid locks but have broken the attachment locks due to falls. No worries, just ratchet strap them back on. The hinge areas may need repair soon but they are 7 years old and I use them all the time.
I feel much safer around them than the sharp edges of the metal boxes and have been around plenty of damaged metal boxes from hitting rocks and falls.
To each their own.
