I've bought electronic parts from them. If you buy anything expect the majority to take many weeks to arrive. They've got some good, cheap flashlights; not "duty" quality but decent for consumer use.

Icoms, Kenwoods and Yaesus are probably made in China nowdays too
I would assume (although I don't have firsthand knowledge) that Kenwood, Yaesu, Icom, etc. exercise a little more quality control over their Chinese manufacturing then a China based company. The Yaesu and Icom equipment I own is high quality and has performed well for many years. Don't know if you can say the same for a $50 transceiver.
