Anyone have anything bad to say about the Kingone/Goodwinch TDS line of winches? It seems that with solid-state sealed solenoids, sealed drums, external brake (in the end cone opposite the motor), and a very reasonable price that they're a lot better on paper than the competition (not looking at speed, etc).

Mostly I'm looking at reliability and with the Canadian climate, road salt, etc added on top of the normal off-road crud the above features just seem to make sense, but in the real-world do they live up to the claims?

I'm about to order a few for testing before possibly becoming a distributor for North America (right now you have to order them out of the UK) and would also like to find some other people who've had the above issues with winches in the past who might want to get a very good deal on one to do reliability/performance testing on for the next 12-18 months? All the claims in the world aren't worth much if they just come out of the minds of the marketing folk.
