A friend picked one up and it crapped out on him on the first trip. Antireverse bearing decided not to work anymore.
Maybe it was just a lemon but based on Quantums history with low end crap I wouldn't do it.
Maybe it's just the cynic in me but whenever a salesperson (in this case shop owner) tries to talk me into something I wonder if he gets a better markup on it over what I actually came in for. (yea, I know, I'm pretty bad but I'm a salesman and I know we can't be trusted ;) )
