I'll post some footage shortly to give you a better idea of how well they work and what they actually look like. I must say, I'm pretty impressed. It seems that the only real difference is that "ARRI" isn't branded into the side (possibly underground sales from the Chinese manufacturer?) Even the parts are interchangable (screws, clamps, bolts, bulbs, etc.).
As a bonus, It comes in a nice, lightweight case. I know, it's not quite an aluminum case but I like it.
