Yes, they seem really stiff when you try to open and close them in your hand. But when you install them they are actually just right - about the same tension as the up-swing doors with hydraulic lifts.
Also, they actually pivots out slightly when they open, which is what allows the door to overlap the door opening and still be able to open without binding against the cabinet face. That pivoting makes them a little harder to open/close in your hand.
