Not to build muscle but they can help prevent muscle atrophy and they do give you a burn the day after.

Bruce Lee used to use them while striking to increase his speed and power.  Didn't do him any harm I suppose.

I would say in experience there best for pain.

TENS machines are only for pain. To work a muscles you need a unit that delivers Stims like Russian or Hi-volt. This is what we use to re-educate a muscle after a stroke for instance. TENS only really works on the sensory nerve, the twitch is only on burst mode at high intensity.
