Are Mag-Hytec Products really worth the money?

I've been wondering for a while if the Mag-hytec tranny pans and rear diff covers really do what they say they do and if they're worth the money. I've looked into them for a while now, and have really been looking at the tranny pan in particular, just because I want the transmission to run as smooth and cool as possible, when I'm really running my truck hard. My tranny on my last truck $h!T the bed twice in 2 months the first was a complete overhaul and upgrade, the second, it wasn't put back together properly and completely seized up. That tranny was crappy in the first place and I was trying to put to much power through it, and it didn't have proper cooling. I want to try to avoid something like that happening w/ this truck, so I ask all those that have the products, are they worth it?
Thanks.

IMO i would just add an auxilliary tranny cooler. the bigger pans just add more fluid to cool when it does get hot. with an aux cooler it should do alot better.That is the route i am gonna take

Brian, from BTS has a good point about higher volume trans pan. The fact is it will indeed take longer to reach opertaing temp, but it also takes much longer to run that fluid through the cooler. So they really may do worse than the factory pans. There diff covers are awesome though

Is there a site I can go to to see a picture of these aux coolers? The Orange Cty site doesn't display pics. Also are their any site sponsors that will give a discounted price?
Thanks.

Should I get one with a fan like SgtStroked7.3 said, or just go w/ a tube style cooler? What are the differences?
