I've actually found them *worse*.  Why?  Because one pin will eventually
get bent.

You will never unbend it.

Every time you unplug the cable, that pin will be re-bent for you.

Eventually, it will break.

Furthermore, you generally can't have an X-Jack coexist with any other
card, especially if the other card has an output connector...
