I looked into this a while ago and was advised to steer clear of them.

Firstly it is a lot of baggage to be sending through for each page and 
also it leaves people with screen readers with too many links to choose 
from - they can't just go to the the tools menu and select the options 
as we can in windows programs, they have to tab or use whatever key to 
navigate through all the links before the one they want.

The link they want could be number 75 out of 100 and then when they 
want to go to the next page in the list they have to tab through all 
the link again to get to the 76th link, and so on.

Not very user friendly.
