Furling Main Sails

Iam looking for cruising boat to take us to the Carribean, Centeral America, etc. And some offshore work. Several of the boats on my short list have in mast roller furling.
I am conerned about these systems not working at the worst possible times and the complexity they had to the sail handling system. I would like to hear from sailors who have used mast furling and the good and bad.
