How bad is Lean Cuisine, really?

Is Lean Cuisine the type of overly processed food I should be trying to avoid, and if so, why?

They hype their "no preservatives in 80%" of meals. No artificial flavors in a large portion too. I always hear how bad processed food is, and microwaved dinners in a box seem quite processed, but then the no preservatives thing makes me think Lean Cuisines might not be so bad. Please explain what is so bad about processed food, and whether this applies to something like Lean Cuisine?
It's so damn convenient! And cheap. (And some meals actually taste pretty good.)
