I also use Blue Seas products extensively, and agree that they do have good customer service.
I just had a chance to take apart a few of their analog meters and, in parallel, a couple of much cheaper no-brand analog meters from China (a bit of a custom project here). Inside I found exactly the same stuff. Quality of connections and components was very much the same.
Nothing wrong about that - not every user wants to muck with generic components from China. People do pay for a label, support and consistency in fit, connections, standards etc.
