I guess it all depends on who you deal with. This is a game about people, and like the rest of life, there are good people and not so good people (even within the same company).
I can only speak from personal experience, but I had a very good experience using a recruiter to find work. Brian Mariani from mirRoR Placement was fantastic to work with. He got me set up with a great gig, and I'm very happy with the arrangement. Hopefully, so is the client. Brian really made me feel like he was looking for the best possible environment for me, not just the first job that came along. I would highly recommend him.
I also tried Yoh! and while I generally liked the recruiters there, I got passed around from recruiter to recruiter like a football, and didn't feel like they had my best interests in mind.
You can't judge a whole apple tree by one bad apple.
