I would just like to know other daemon players experience with these guys such as the pros the cons, best unit sizes and what uses they have.
I am at the moment considering taking a unit of 5 in my 1000 point army, would they be worth it of would they be too easy a kill for my enemy without making even a slight impact?
You may find a lot of information in this thread

Although, feel free to post any other questions or ideas you might have
whoops! sorry didn't even think
Personally, they're an expensive missile magnet that consistently underachieves and never fulfils a single purpose aside from taking away a rank or so from a Daemonette or Bloodletter unit.
I would never personally field them again. Any large unit becomes to unwieldy to effectively use, and smaller units tend to, uh, die.
They can claim and contest table quarters. Furies will be the chaepest way to do this.
An example from my last game. Against some Dark Elves, I was faxcing some Cold One Knights. H eplaced on the flank next to a forest, which would be fine normaly, but I got first turn. I ran my Furies right upto their face. I got in to a Position, where if he didn't charge my Furies, my Hounds would charge him. Thing is, if he did charge the Furies, he'd be left in the open to be charged anyway (thanks to Hatred and the overrun). Had they charged me instead, those S6 lances would have killed me good.
That's just 1 example. In all my games, Furies and Hounds work together so damn well, helping them get to the other side of the field un hurt.
I second the furies and hounds working well together.
I played my first game with my khorne legion at 1k points against my friends beastmen, the two units working together was a considerable factor in me winning the game. In this case the furies died a horrible death, but not after baiting his tricked out Tzeentch Wargor and bodyguard into a vulnerable charge from the hounds.
As a side note, I freaking hate giants. Whats that? I was going to win combat by seven because of my clever rear-charge from hounds? Your giant throws a tantrum and for some reason wins combat by two? So much rage...
Aye, the hounds do have a rather amazing ability to tear apart a very wide range of targets, but they still die when the giant then decides to fall on them the next round.
That being said, Giants are ridiculously awesome models. If my troops are going to be torn apart because chance wants to lap me in the face I'd rather it be a massive ugly giant, rather than some pansy elves.
Run little man run!
