I would agree with the "be careful" in buying direct from China. I've personally purchased some "Cisco" products out of's said "Cisco", had the logo's and everything, but when held side by each with a real "Cisco" product, it was obvious that it was a cheeeeep imitation. Probably parts rejected by QC (which isn't very high in China to begin with) and just silkscreened with logo's and re-sold. I don't know if it's worth the having to rework a controller when the parts fail - I think our respective labor in assembly is worth some $$$ - it would be a PITA to keep having to remove and replace because we bought rejected and re-silkscreened parts.....I want a quality controller.
