Bouillon Cubes

Like many people I've got a pecking order for my stock and broth preferences - homemade, then the good stuff in a box, then canned. Due to time and money restrictions I just bought some beef and chicken bouillon cubes, even though I've never used them before. Am I taking a step down or are they just as good as store bought boxed or canned stuff? I know it won't be as good as homemade, but sometimes you just gotta make do. I'm hoping they'll at least be better than just adding water to sauces, soups, etc.
