KNOCK OFF/GENERIC eBay finds? Good or Bad! Share your experiences
I know not all no-name brands/knock offs/generic items are garbage. There is uncertainty though, as many of the items don't have reviews/reputation and some can be poor quality.
Just want to hear everyone's experiences, whether they be good or bad. So any recommendations or knock off items to avoid.
Can be anything from $1 check valves, suction cups, co2 equipment to cheap heaters to various controllers to canister filters, and everything in between that is aquarium related.
Any hidden gems (great finds) out there? Seeing if there is anything intriguing out there for a good deal and worth a try.
As popular as Aquatop/SunSun has become, it probably still is considered as a bargain/off-brand. Feel free to mention anything though.
Don't post any eBay links as they will be removed, but I guess Amazon links to identical items or keywords (maybe an item #?), pics or just a description should be good.
Please no opinionated comments about off brand items without having tried them.
