I have a couple of Fotodiox adapters, and their quality is superior to my other adapters; very study and well made. Unfortunately I paid a lot more than 19.95 each a few years ago. I can definitely confirm that $19.95 is a good price.

From my personal experience, I bought 1 of these low cost screens and installed it in an E-510.

To the point that I decided to take it out and replace it with the original screen. The exposure on my images returned to normal. I decided that it was better to go with the original screen.

Katzeye screens are a different product entirely and, since I've never used on, I can't really comment on it.

I bought and installed Katzeye on my E500 couple of years back. Never ever had any problems ( through it's fault...) least of all with exposure values. Used it tonight even.

Hope you enjoy your adapter. I already owned a lot of legacy lens from from OM2 days. What I found is that it's worth the effort to buy an adapter for each of your legacy lens. I keep the adapters attached to each of my manual lens, so there is no time lost looking for the adapter and attaching it to the manual lens. I know that any of my manual lens that I pick up will be ready to put on any of my digital camera bodies.

LOL! I am still laughing at that one. Thanks, you made my day.
It's raining here and ruined my plans to actually get out with the camera and take a few shots. How can I be bored with always good comments from the forum members!

Happy to help. Like you, it's hard for me to not apply a sense of humor to life...
