Not as bad as they say, but not great either.

I guess this is deserving of a lot of the flak it has received, but I think it got so much flak because it carries the name Stargate...which has fans that are very protective of the license, and who hold it to a very high standard (which is fair enough).
Other than the use of the Stargate system and the references to the SGC (Stargate Command), there is very little else, if anything, that links this cartoon series with the live action movie and the 3 spin-off series. Certainly the powers that be have gone on record saying that the cartoon series is not canonical.
Animation is at its most basic level, characters are pretty much clichéd, and story telling is your typical Saturday morning cartoon action sprinkled with a moralistic good vs evil message. However, I have found some of the episodes to be quite enjoyable....and the box-set was cheap enough to not make me regret buying it, especially as I'm a completist and it looks good next to my giant Stargate SG1 complete series 1-10 box-set, and my Stargate Atlantis season sets. And even if you find you hate it, but have kids, I'm sure they'll find it worth a glance. I know I did.
