I guess untill someone comes along with first hand evidence it's a bit pot luck
But it worked for me
There is SOME good product coming out of China... however, the big question is if you want to gamble on that? If the boat falls apart after a year, will there be support? Must of the sellers don't care.
There is some genuinely good product with good support being imported though.
It seems like Excel and Honwave are the two big off-brands I see for SIBs in the UK?
