WIC valves?

Anybody using this company for their CO2 solenoids? Seems to be a terrific price so I'm not too concerned with it lasting a lifetime. I can replace it three times for the price of others. My question relates more to hum or buzz, maybe heating or any other problems you've found?

Any thoughts from anybody who has used them?

It looks like the one we would use has a standard wattage 6.5. That will run HOT and probably wouldn't last long. It does look like you can order them in 3W. That would be your best bet.
