They may not be worth it for the "advertised" horsepower gains, but for the adjustable parameters, (gear ratios, tire/wheel change, etc.), they're pretty handy, especially if you switch to different wheels/tires for winter use, or soemthing like that, and don't have the funds for a Jet DST setup, or something similiar.
That being said, you can usually find perfectly good ones that have only been used once or twice all over Ebay for around $200, or even cheaper sometimes. (I mean, you program the thing, then leave it in a box for a couple of years until you sell the vehicle, how bad of shape could most of them be in?)

I didn't have any pinging issues with the premium tune running 91 octane. maybe individual trucks react a little differently depending on mods?
