Yeah they are fine, but there are much better ones you could get for that money. Like the FSA Nasty Boys, or, for 15 bucks more than 120$, you could get some Profile Racing cranks, and those are good cranks, mainly because of the lifetime warranty. But the Nasty Boys are basicly clones of Profile's Racing cranks, they just don't have a lifetime warranty. Your choice, but like queensrider said, they're fine. Just remember, you get what you pay for!

Redline Monster cranks are great if your budget is 90$. They have lasted me 1 whole year now.

OHHH, yes! I forgot about Redline Monster cranks, they are really good cranks too if (like bmichaelx said) your budget is a little lower. They are a tad on the heavy side, but they are alot lighter that a 1-piecer, or forged 3-peicers.

PS: I have them on my bike too. They've been great. The paint wears off of the sides really fast though. But , your not buying it for the paint.

The Poverty P.O.W cranks are a great set for the price and quality. I know people that have them and really like them and they recomend them to other riders on a budget. They may not be the lightest thing but for the money its a deal
