They work well when used properly, and really shine if you need to take care of a large amount of water at once
1 liter or 100 liters is the same treatment time with chemicals

If your just doing 1 liter or so other methods may make more sense, the example on page 1 of this thread took about 3minutes

Like most things it depends on the situation, a few purification tabs are very light and take almost no space so why not have some :D
