Are lacefronts really THAT BAD?!

Now, I'm not talking about the fronts that look a hot mess, like pictured above(wrong...oh SO wrong unnamed celebrity Misses), but those that are properly put on and worn as an alternative style.
As naturals, many of us look for alternative styling methods that serve as protective styling; minimizing instances of potential damage and over-manipulation. Many of these ladies have resorted to regular wigs AND lacefronts. After you've exhausted the twists and braids(and subsequent twist/braid-outs), the bantu knots, flat-twists/cornrows, buns, coils, etc...why NOT try something that gives your hair a break? What's wrong with lacefronts gone GOOD?
Or is that an oxymoron? LOL!
Now, I've been eying a wig for awhile(pictured below, from zarawigs.com), but unlike the many lacefronts I've seen rocked, it's rather close to my natural texture and made of natural hair. I can easily straighten my own hair if I want a straight look, but I've never had longish naturally curly/kinky hair, and the wig actually gives me an idea of how it could possibly look.
And I think it's cute. :) Better pics and description of the wig can be found here.
Although cute, I've been reluctant as I'm unsure as to the practices used in obtaining human hair. Not with this particular company, but generally speaking.
So are lacefronts really that bad, or are the people caught rocking them poorly REALLY to blame? LOL!
