Good deal on Crank Brothers headsets on Ebay?

Was looking at these headsets on ebay. Seems like a pretty good deal. Is this pretty good and anyone used them? SL vs. C?

Smells like SPAM. First post and it happens to point to a couple of Ebay listings.

In case it isn't, here's a recent review from one of the guys here.

It's product review time, kids! [o]

I'd not buy one again. Lot's of anecdotal evidence floating about there on the web that the headsets are not durable for the long run.

If the cup splits apart during install by otherwise competent mechanics, that ought to be a clue. . . Wish I'd paid attantion.

I was hoping you'd stop by this thread, scrub.
