Default Canon 7D Battery Grip

I am wondering if anyone has experience with the off brand battery grips? Are they just as good as the canon ones? Price is pretty good, since some come with 2 to 4 batts, but I dont want something that will break or mess up my camera.

sometimes the difference is on the vertical site wheel.. I had a knock off and the wheel was very loose. but when i put the canon on there if was a little stiffer. someone told me it was the gears that they use.. friend of mine has a t2i with the knock off and the same thing was there also. good luck..
