Taiwan boats, any good?

I am looking at array of heavy cruisers made in Taiwan, any comments on their short comings would be appreciated. The wood work looks really nice but i worry about the basic build. My experience with a 1975 Formosa built yacht was that the castings of things like cleats etc. was not up to scratch. The wireing was also doubious. Since they probably build more boats than any one, have they gotten over these problems now? I am now looking at the 1982-3 year builds.
