Presets when importing into Lightroom?

I import all of my files as DNG RAW files and have not been using any presets on import. In speaking with others it seems that many people seem to use presets on import. I went ahead and tried it but was a bit dismayed to find that after having done so the slider controls were are still at the default setting so i could not really tell what had been done to them (heavy sigh). This import preset is annoying but it sure seems like it would save some time..... Do you import with a/some presets and does it seem to work well for you?

Lightroom is a big part of my workflow with CR2 files from Canon etc. I don't use any presets during import for the exact reason you brought up. I want to know exactly what is and isn't done to my images so I keep it very simple.
