Well, in practice (no theory about it) they are nice, if they're what you're looking for (in my case, it is).
If the OP looks at them and decides they fit his need in a format he likes, then it's a good fit.
I have three Nikon BDC scopes, and in addition to being a pretty decent scope for the money, they use a common application (that I have on my phone) for ballistic info.
I appreciate that you have tried them and prefer something else, but it won't necessarily be the case for everyone.
