Nothing wrong with aluminum cases. As far as I know, they are as good as brass and I haven't heard anything to the contrary.
However, they are not to be reloaded. In my opinion, never reload aluminum cases. I have heard of people reloading them once before discarding them but I wouldn't take the risk.
To expand on your thoughts, I despise steel cases for many reasons. Most of all because they can damage the extractor. I have a friend that broke the extractor on his 1911 by using steel case ammo.
That's my thoughts in a nuy shell.

Yes...aluminum is softer than brass is softer than steel casings.

They cannot be reloaded...and depending on the caliber ( especially in revolvers like .357 Mag and .44 Mag ) will swell
after firing and may be hard to extract from the cylinder...

Just from experience...I rarely buy them, and definitely not in magnum loadings.
