I use them all the time, trick is to tin the wire, put a smidge of tin on the half hole, and them just melt them together. Trying to solder untinned wire, or even to just add solder to the joint is difficult with a component as small as that.

I never had any trouble with them.
All I would say is that the plating on a half hole can tear off easily if you yank anything soldered to it.
