Anyone bought solar panels from Sun Solar?

My solar panels stopped working recently and its a good opportunity to upgrade from 20 watts for more power.
I have been searching for good quality at good prices and came across an ebay site called Sun Solar. They have very low prices and free shipping!
$1.95/watt New 30 watt Sun Solar Panel PV Mono-crystalline 25 Years Warranty | eBay
Examples:
30 watt for Mono Crystal for $55.50
40 Watt Mono Crystal panel for $75.60
The aluminum frame is anodized and they have a 25 year performance guarantee and a 2 year material warranty. They say they have been in business since 1998 and they have good Ebay Feedback.

These prices are easily a third less then companies like SunWize.
They justify their low prices by being direct sellers of their own products that are manufactured in their Chinese factory, but I am concerned that it may be poor quality and too good to be true!

If anyone has any experience or concerns with Sun Solar, please let me know.

Thanks!

Larry

Don't know 'em, but some of the cheaper panels have no blocking diodes (not a stopper, but you'll need to take that into account) and aren't built or warranteed for either "marine" use or "vehicle installation". At the right price you may not care--but it is worth asking them.
